Ever the thrifty humans, mom and dad recently acquired an older Weber propane grill dad found on Asheville's Freecycle website. If you've never heard of it, freecycle.org is an awesome website where people can post things they wish to get rid of or items they're looking for. Everything is free, and it keeps lots of stuff out of the landfills.
The grill only needed a little cleaning, and dad hooked up a tank of propane, soaped up all the joints to check for gas leaks, and fired it up for the first time. They grilled a nice juicy rib eye steak, an oddity 'round these parts, some potatoes and corn on the cob. And I know it'll be hard to believe, but I didn't get even a morsel. Some bull about diet, kidneys, protein, etc. I just think they wanted it all for themselves.
