Hide it in the basement and bring it out in several months. When asked, just say you've had it a long time.
Or point out that some men collect other women, but you're too busy with your grills.
I count myself pretty lucky. I've been sneaking the odd Smokey Joe or 22.5 WSM or SS Performer into the collection and as long as they were all black, I figured I could get away with it. Last week we picked up a red Imperial Sequoia at my son's place and when I asked her to help load it into the back of the truck, she didn't bat an eye. When we were unloading it she asked if our son decided he didn't want it and I said no, he picked it up for me. She said "Oh, looks nice."
Good luck with your acquisition!
