Default Attention Menards Shoppers!!

I was at our Menards Store today...

Scored an 18# bag of RO briqs for $4, and a rib rack for an additional $4.
Rib rack is similar to the Weber rack, but has the enamel finish.

Going back for more briqs tomorrow.

THanks for the tip! Everytime I walk into Menards I seem to drop $100 or better. I love that place.

I used to live in Nebraska... Out by Offut and the big Tractor Truck place that starts with a W/

I saw the title of this thread and immediately thought of Cheech Marin in Dusk Til Dawn. Guess that tells you where my mind is.

Yep. Lots of them in the upper midwest, especially Illinois where my mother lives. None down here in Dixie.
