I attempt to live that slogan from the boots I wear to the beer I drink. And now my cookers. Even my VC gasser is old enough to boast that label. Took a while but finally found a toaster and coffee maker made in USA via ebay. I'm not perfect at it. I buy multiple types of lump and briquettes and a lot of it is made well south of Abilene.
Well said 16Adams, we should all try and buy American when possible.
