  1. I’m kind of with CL on this but for different reasons. If you park on the street across from a driveway, you’re an asshole.
  2. No no no. She can nut up and get her shattered screen fixed. I have all the kids shitty phones that they don’t use. I’d put my wife’s SIM card in one of those. No way I’d give my wife my phone.
  3. We have two dogs that are pretty old, so they’re slowing down. Twice my wife has decided we needed to change their dry food and bought a 30+ pound bag of the new food. Both times the dogs refused to eat it. Guess what got delivered today from Chewy.........
  4. Yesterday was going to clean the pool, had a ton of rain over the past week (had to drain off the pool 3 times) so I knew I’d need a bag of salt. Checked the local hardware store, they had it in stock so I figured I’d go grab a bag and be done. My wife decided since she needed to go grocery shopping, she’d just take a water sample in and get the salt there. Ok, fine, as long as I don’t have to drive the 20 miles there, sure. 4 hours later She came home with groceries, no salt. They were out and said a lot of places were. She stopped at multiple places on her way home and couldn’t find any. Guess who went a mile down the road and came back with salt? In addition to that, I had to go to the grocery store today because somehow in all of that shopping, she bought ZERO groceries for actual meals, just random stuff.
  5. Lasagna. Spicy Italian sausages on top so the wife can pick them off. Homemade pasta, spinach/meat sauce layers, mozzarella layers, ricotta layers.
  6. I’ll admit the 36” one I had that the legs folded up on to transport always had me worried but it never failed ;-). I took it a few places but not enough to want to keep portability as an option. The proline is one solid beast though
  7. I bought my first griddle when (like you) I was looking at new grills, I figured it wasn’t that expensive and worth trying out. I probably will get a BGE at some point, but dont regret not having a grill. You can do so much more with a griddle and it’s pretty easy to clean. Last night I did a copycat Alice springs chicken on it and it was fantastic, was able to cook the bacon, mushrooms, and chicken breast pretty much at the same time, then smothered with cheese and closed the lid to melt. Fajitas are fast and easy, can do a huge breakfast without heating up the house. Plus I can cook 5lbs of bacon at one go ;-)
  8. Have the margaritaville key west model. It’s easy to use and can do 3 pitchers with one load of ice. It’s easy enough my 15 year old is quite the bartender when we have people over, she keeps everyone’s drinks full and makes good daiquiris, pina coladas, and margaritas with it which means I don’t have to ;-)
  9. I still have the grill drop in for my old blackstone, never used in 3 years. I just don’t see the point in it, everything comes out great on the griddle, why mess with a good thing If something comes up to where I have more cash than I can ever spend, maybe I’ll get a BGE if I want something with grill marks ;-).
  10. A cover wouldn’t hurt. I keep mine in the garage for now though until I finally get around to building my cook shack in the backyard.
  11. It’s in the trash ;-). I use (used) a cheap plastic bowl for water to wipe it down before initial seasoning and had it sitting in the middle of the shelf. The heat coming out melted the side of it. Good news is the melted plastic wiped right off the shelf ;-) I had the wrap around shelf for my old one and it would do the same thing if you had plastic too close to the griddle, the bowl was a bit farther away from the cook surface out of habit. I now have a small table I set up now when cooking just to keep everything there, there’s just not enough space on the shelves for stuff that can’t get hot. It was a solid upgrade, my old one got a heck of a lot of use (even my wife would cook on it a lot—she never cooked on our grill when we had one).
  12. Finally retired my 5+ year old 36” and got the pro series 36”. I’ve been dying to try the models with the grease tray in the back since I first saw them in stores. Went online to get one and saw the pro series and couldn’t resist. Pros: - trash bag holder is awesome - paper towel holder is awesome - it’s solid. I was never concerned with the old one, but since it is designed to fold/be portable, it wiggled - lid is insulated, no need to use domes, just close the lid - have yet to have drips and the grease tray is much bigger Cons: - I think the price is a bit high - the shelves are too high, all the heat from under the griddle top flows right onto the shelves (have the melted plastic to prove it). - drawer slides could be better quality. They work but not very smooth So far it wipes clean (just like the old model), nice to not have grease running down the legs and having to take the knobs off to clean grease off of them.
  13. With everything going on lately, we’ve been trying to support our local farmers by buying direct from them. Over the weekend we decided we’d look into buying half a cow since we have the freezer space and there’s some concern over the supply line over the next couple of months. She blasts her local redneck friends for recommendations yesterday morning and by noon, we’re all set. Awesome. She comes home from work yesterday and says a couple of her co-workers want in on it. Then she says her mom only wants a couple of pounds of ground beef and to see if my family wants anything. I told her to stop, we had decided to do this to stock up the freezer, not to sell a couple of pounds of meat to everyone she knows. I told her I know how things would end up, I’ll pay for the beef and she’d end up selling all the good stuff to her coworkers for cash and I’ll have paid 1200 for 60 lbs of ground beef. Think once it comes in, I’ll make use of the lock on the deep freezer for the first time.
