Every so often, Karen's employer holds a silent auction at work, with the proceeds benefiting local charities. This past Thursday marked another such occasion. Knowing that the money would be going to a good cause, Karen took a quick break from work and went downstairs to check out what was available. Among the items up for bid was a MasterBuilt 7 in 1 Smoker and Grill. Seeing that no one had yet bid on this, Karen put down an offer. She figured that if she won this, she would just give it to me. (Aww, that's very nice of you, sweetie!)
Well, guess what? She won the smoker, along with every other item on which she bid. (And she bid on a lot of stuff!) We're going to be over in the neighborhood for a birthday party this weekend, so we'll probably drop by the office to pick up that 50 pound box.
With the acquisition of the smoker, we now have four grilling/smoking/BBQ apparatuses between the two of us. In addition to the smoker, we have:
- A Black Weber 22 1/2-Inch One-Touch Silver Kettle Grill: a gift from Karen's mom and dad which she hauled back from the Poconos a few years back
- A Blue Weber One-Touch Gold Kettle Grill: a 5 year anniversary gift from my employer; I actually have the 18 inch version
- A Char Broil Quickset EvenFlame 30,000 BTU Grill: not exactly this model, but one of its predecessors
