Two years. Two years my husband and I have been without a grill. Two years we've disagreed on what kind of grill we need. Two years we've been cooking steaks, chicken, burgers and kabobs stove top via cast iron cookware. Well friends, I'm happy to say a decision has been made and hubby got a new toy over the weekend!
Please meet the Traeger Lil Tex. This is a true BBQ machine. Not only is this a grill, but it's a straight up smoker (and that's necessary in the Pacific Northwest, we've got salmon!). My mouth was watering at the possibilities before we even left home with this thing. He smoked up brisket the day we brought it home, and he made us some delicious grilled chicken for our lunches this work week. I married a grilling fiend!
It brought the biggest smile to my face to see him so happy this weekend. He's truly proud of his new purchase. I'm happy we'll be spending more time cooking together. Combine my favorite hobby with my best friend and we've got some great memories ahead of us.
