The New Grill

We readied the new grill Friday afternoon for weekend grilling. We completed the assembly (For the most part, the grill was assembled. All that was necessary was attaching the table and side burner, placing the Flavorizer® bars, placing the grills, placing the propane tank, connecting the side burner, and testing the system.) We placed the cover on the grill and adjourned to the cool air that awaited us indoors.

Saturday, we grilled burger patties from Omaha Steaks (thank you, Chris!) and enjoyed bacon cheeseburgers and Ore-Ida® onion rings.

Laura took these photographs with her iPhone:

Sunday, we grilled an incredible top sirloin steak and stuffed baked potatoes from Omaha Steaks (thank you, Chris!), an excellent ahi steak, and asparagus. We enjoyed an excellent bottle of Nevada City Winery Directors' Reserve Contour that was given to Laura. Laura photographed the wine bottle, and I photographed the food. We used our iPhones.
