I made good to Weber...

I have fulfilled my first Weber Decency mission...Here's my story.

A few weeks ago we went out to my wifes cousins for a picnic. Her cousin showed up with a charcol grill, a thermometer and a bag of Kingsford. He explained about how he was going to cook a few London Broil's using a new thing he learned called the offset method. He was as serious as any of us and very determined (it brought a tear to my eye). Then out came the lighter fluid....sooooooo...this weekend when he came in for the reunion, I gifted him with a Weber chimeny and made him promise he'd never buy lighter fluid again..It was a very touching moment.

Anyone else..

Ya, me too..but that could have been directly correlated to the large amount of alcohol I had consumed...

Good job, John. My kit is still mostly unused, except I did put Decency stickers on my bike's side cases.
