Default WSJ Semi-retired

When my older son moved out to start his new career as a DVM, he took "his" Weber Performer with him, leaving me with a WSJ for family cooks. Today, the WSJ got officially semi-retired (to become a WSM Mini). Here are a couple shots of its last official cook as a grill. Couple of nice rib eyes.

With some sweet tater & mushrooms, salad on the side lurking outside the photo.
So, you might ask, what do I do for a grill now? Well Brown just stopped by and dropped of this bad boy:

And in case the label is a little fuzzy

I'm gonna have fun with this big dog!

I was actually feeling a little bit sorry for you until I saw the Big Dog. I guess you will just have to suffer now without the Performer. BTW - fine looking steak!

I was trying to figure out how the Wall Street Journal was retiring...

Congrats on the new cooler!

Congrats and you're gonna LOVE that big boy! Very easy to smoke on it using the minion snake method (or whatever it's called when you line the charcoal around the kettle wall and light one end).
