My dad, Ben, has been a Weber enthusiast (well, Weber Nut might be more accurate) for as long as I can remember. It started with a Smokey Joe. Ol’ Benj would be outside, huddled over that baby preparing dinner for our family of five (!) with incredible diligence and dedication. Today, he has another family of five- his beloved Weber grills. Sometimes I think he might love them more than us, but I must admit that they give him immense pleasure and pride by helping him create the most delicious meats imaginable. He shares his talents with us on a weekly basis, which is a total gift. Dad has nearly perfected the art of grilling and smoking every meat known to man (Ok, he hasn’t pursued ostrich or bison, but I’m sure y’all will let that slide.) I know that meeting Kevin would be the greatest gift I could ever give my dad. Now I’m counting on you, the fine folks who have enhanced my dad’s life and fueled his most beloved hobby for more than fifteen years, to make it happen. Ben is an incredibly hard worker and an amazing dad. He never asks for anything, but this year he asked me to apply to this contest. You’d be hard-pressed to find a guy more devoted to your products, or a daughter more dedicated to making this Father’s Day the most special for her dad. Thanks in advance, we can’t wait to see y’all in Chicago!
