My dad has always been frugal. One of the few extravagant purchases he ever made was a Weber grill in the late 1960's in Wheaton, IL. Our family moved seven times after that due to company transfers and safe transit of that grill was one of my dad's great concerns. He was always so proud to grill on it and made sure I learned at an early age the proper way to stack charcoal, create cooking zones, and measure doneness. He gave me that grill in 1990 when he retired. I went through a LP stage but have added another Weber kettle grill and now have two. My dad is 83 and lives in Florida, we live in North Carolina. He loves to help grill when he comes to visit. This trip would be heaven for him.
