It should come as no surprise to anyone here that I like to cook.
And being that I live in Austin, where outdoor grilling season begins on Jan 1 and ends on Dec 31, I spend a lot of time cooking outdoors.
I've had a trusty Ducane gas grill that's served me well for almost a decade now, but it's given up its final ghost and it has been retired.
I just took delivery of my latest toy this morning:
More versatile than my gas grill, I'll not only be able to grill on it, but it's also a smoker and a ceramic oven. Yes, that means firing pizza at 800ºF (that's 423ºC for those using reasonable units of measure). And naan -- I do love naan.
Inaugural usage will commence this weekend with prime rib-eyes and baked potatoes.
