When I woke up this morning, I had no idea I'd be buying a

600 dollar electric grill. But I did.

I was a "celebrity waiter" for a big luncheon fundraiser for
the Red Cross at Margaritaville, the jimmy buffet place.
They had a silent auction of stuff too, and I love silent
auctions ...you can get some cool stuff cheap and it's
tax deductible.

so I saw this and said, why not, you can never have
too many grills.....came with a 25 dollar gift card and
a box of Sticky Fingers sauces.....

I paid 225 bucks.

Nice deal Cappy. Use it for catering events when you need to cook up a pan of beans or something.

I plan on taking it to comps to do bacon and eggs for breakfast.
I just bought a digiQ from BBQ Guru, it arrived today, so I bought
a battery charger power supply thingy that you keep in your
car to jump start your battery in case of emergency...got
a good model that has ac dc and a decent power supply,
so I think I can run both the guru and the grill off of it.

and my wife called today for a child support check. I don't
know who's paying for all this shit, but some of you guys
better start buying whatever it is I'm selling.

Nice deal. Check the numbers on you battery pack and compare them to you grille. Resistive heating sucks power big time and may draw the battery pack down in a hurry.
Shouldn't you be okay with comp supplied 120vac? I'm not sure what they supply in amps.
If you can't workout the power details I'll take it off your hands for $78.

I'm sure your power company will thank you for this purchase.

costs only 10Ę
an hour to use. Compare that to as much $1.50 an hour
for ordinary 30,000 BTU gas grills. Or up to $3.00 for
60,000 BTU gas grills.
