Grilling Steaks in the Front Yard? Why Not!


Front Yard with Gravel area I’ve been celebrating National Gardening Month (April) a bit early by having my front yard professionally remodeled. During the design phase of my remodel, the landscaper took one look at my yard and pronounced, “This yard is a blank slate.” (In other words, “It looks terrible!”)

My family and I planted all the trees, shrubs, and ground cover (pictured). As we dug holes, watered, and fertilized, my teenage sons eyed the graveled area where I am considering adding a beautiful Ipé wood bench from Rich’s.

“We should put a grill in this spot,” they announced. “And a fire pit! We can barbeque steaks out here, and then roast marshmallows for dessert and sit by the fire.”

Hmmm… hadn’t thought of that.

Now—particularly in light of the fact that Rich’s has a huge Outdoor Living sale in progress (through May 10, 2010)—I’m re-considering how to use my new outdoor space.

Broilmaster P Series Grill This “P” (for “Premium”) Series Broilmaster grill might be just the ticket. Available in natural gas and propane, the grill comes standard with:

  • Push-button electronic igniter
  • Dual-control knobs
  • Porcelain-coated cast iron cooking grids*
  • Stainless steel built-in heat indicator
  • Adjustable stainless steel lid stop
  • Aluminum grill body castings*
  • Stainless steel bowtie burner*
  • Retractable stainless steel warming rack
  • Standard Charmaster briquets. Optional stainless steel flavor screen

This grill’s stainless steel cart and mountings carry a lifetime warranty – important, since I’ll be hauling it back and forth to my garage.

And hey, the front shelf even has cup holders! You can’t go wrong with cup holders.

Rich’s makes a point of serving as a one-stop grilling shop. In addition to a full line of grills and grill accessories from Broilmaster, Weber, Big Green Egg, Dimplex, Lynx, TwinEagles, Vermont Casting, DCS, and Traeger, Rich’s carries a huge array of rubs, sauces, and charcoal flavors.
