Sitting by the Fire
She was my partner for many great meals. We shared good times with friends and family and she put up with never being cleaned (except for the grate).
While putting away the outdoor furniture for the winter, I heard a loud crack and watched as she collapsed in a heap on the patio. I had saved her twice before, but this was it - her time had come.
With no Wintercuing this season, I decided to use the time to research and learn about barbecues and barbecuing and to share my journey as I find a new patio partner.
I want to learn about the different kinds of bbq's such as gas, propane and briquets (they're making a comeback) as well as get some tips on how to bbq better. I for the likes of me can't Q up a great steak - this is the year. Also, feel free to jump in if you have any tips as we go along. Stay tuned...
One of many new designs that we just launched - Keep Calm and Grill On is one of a plethora of parodies of the Keep Calm and Carry On poster used by the British Government in 1939 during the Second World War.
More information can be found at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keep_Calm_and_Carry_On . I found it very interesting to learn the meaning as well as the revival of the logo and how it is still relevant today.
With Christmas and New Year's wrapping up, it's time for everyone to get cracking on their resolutions - yes, it's time for change.
This year's big change for us is creating a website that allows us to be more interactive with our customers. It will be a way for us to share some stories and insights in the most common backyard activity - barbecuing.
It will also be a forum for us to talk about new products and designs that you'd like to create and share with your friends and family.
We're excited about all the upcoming posts and ideas that we have to share, and welcome you to our new site. We look forward to sharing many stories with you our customers.
