Default Stunned Smoker!

Last week a local hardware store had an ad advertising a "grill" sale with demos the following weekend. This morning my wife asked me if we could visit as she wanted to see an "egg". We visited and she wanted a Bif Green Egg, the XL because you can't wish you got the bigger one later on! I was stunned that she wanted it and especially when she started asksing questions that made it apparent she had done some research online. If I didn''t know better I'd think she was jealous of all the time I spend with my smokers!



And father's day isn't until tomorrow!

And if I didn't know better, I'd guess we are all jealous of you for having that woman as your wife!
