Barbecue - a comparison

When we lived in the UK, we had a barbecue. It looked like this.

We didn't bring it because for some reason it got rusty being outside during a British summer.  US customs don't like you importing rusty things.  Seriously, they don't like rust and will impound your belongings if you try and bring in rusty stuff.

Now we are living in a place where you can expect sun during the summer, I thought we should get a new barbecue, or grill as they are known here.  We went to Home Depot and I saw this.

It's got cupboards and drawers and it's even got a fridge for the beer and a roof so you can grill in the rain!  I'm currently in negotiation with Il Capo over its purchase.  As I keep stressing to her, if she ever threw me out the house, I could live in the grill!


  1. severe bloke envy setting in..... must have larger barbeque..... need sufficient grilling capacity to feed thousands.....

    and then the harsh crashign return to british reality as I realise:

    1) My garden is so small fitting a full sized box of matches ib would be a squeeze.
    2) The weather.
    3) Did I mention the weather...?

    Guess I'm going to have to grill vicariously and live the dream second hand....

  2. remind me in future to check my spelling before posting.....
