Celebratory greetings!

Birthday greetings go out today to jerrycoin -- as well as yours truly. In fact, I just changed my Insider profile age range to reflect a new decade. Also, a "Happy Anniversary!" today to madmax. (We miss you, max.)

 

Here's what Mrs. Fox surprised me with this AM. (After a decade+ of heavy use, the old CharBroil had almost burned through the bottom of the kettle.) This baby will be put into action this weekend when I smoke a couple of salmon flanks for a big 6-0 wingding.

...and up. Also, a new chimney charcoal starter.

Happy holidays, Insiders, and happy cooking!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY  to the two young men that I follow.

     

    Unfortunately you are catching up with me in physical years but I  still beat you guys by retaining my maturity level at 14 years.

     

    HAVE A GREAT DAY AND HAVE MANY MANY MORE

    I can only repeat the post from misterchk

    jerrycoin

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY  to the two young men that I follow.

     

    I  still have 15 years on you guys.  I still  beat you guys by retaining my maturity level at 14 years, just like

    misterchk.  My wife would probably disagree and might suggest that 12 is more accurate.

      I was flattering myself - those that know me best say the maturity level of a 14 year old is when I am behaving on a good day.......probably is much lower on an average day.

      Thank you, AZDesertRat. There will definitely be some photos taken of the results of the first go with the grill.

      (I originally wrote food p - o - r - n rather than photos, but the auto censor wouldn't go for it. It's such a prude.)

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY GENTLEMEN!!!!!  Sorry for the belated wishes, but I was trying out some new "prescribed meds" and found I liked one of them very much.

     

    Wishing you (jerrycoin and foxglove) both a wonderful year ahead and many years of happy grilling.

     

    Mrs. Foxglove sure provided a splendid rig there.  I do love me some Weber products alright, ahhh huh!!  And when in Chicago you must dine at the Weber Grill in honor of your new birthday gift,

    Enjoy your Salmon smoking and many more delightful eats.....From one Weber griller to another....congrats.

      Thanks, IAHFLYR. I'm looking forward to firin' that bad boy up come tomorrow, although even as a charcoal grill, it's a lot more high-tech than I'm used to. (Integrated thermometer and one touch cleaning? Yeah, I think I can get used to that.)

       

      I really liked the Weber ad from a couple of years ago that featured ordinary folks dancing around their grills with their mitts and utensils -- I'm gonna  be bustin' some moves tomorrow!

        foxglove & The specified item was not found. Please stop with the Webers.  I cannot use mine for at least a few months.  One thing I do hate about winter is that grilling is not easy.  On top of that I'm on a very restricted diet for a while and can't eat most of what I do on the grill.  I hope to be back in action by spring.

          phctourist,

           

          Sorry that you cannot enjoy the finer things of grilling however; us'ns in the south can grill all year long and would be happy to send you some of the flavors  even if it is only the scrappins from the grates!!!

           

          I actually have been known to grill in the rain and yes even below freezing temps that we get once or twice a year here in North Houston, so you can do it too.  Hope you get well soon to enjoy some good ole grilled foods.

      sorry, but neither bank has a misterchk listed on their registries.  A nearby Post Office, however, does have a picture on the wall that suspiciously resembles you.  On the picture is an alias misterchk.

            "A dog wearing glasses" ?   Don't know who you are referring to - unless that was a picture of IAHFLYR you were confusing with me! 

             

            A dog wearing glasses - never have I seen something that stupid

      Well  a very happy birthday to you. Took my team to our quarterly strategy session at the Victoria & Albert, Manchester last week. If Renaissance Manchester could get a refurb there would be some nice Marriott competition in your home town.

        I've only ever attended meetings at the Ren, never stayed but it certainly looked me in need of a spruce up. Those I know who have stayed say its a straightforward hotel. but tired in places. That suggests to me its not really competing with the V&A
