Stupid BBQ grill.
I don’t consider myself an expert, but I think I’m decent and sufficiently manly enough to put stuff together. Maybe it’s from all those GI Joe toys during my formative years, who am I to say? It continued with desks, bookshelves, bicycles, etc. I finally met my greatest challenge — the Kenmore Liquid Propane Gas Grill, model number 415.16127800.
I’m glad I didn’t attempt to put it together Saturday evening, as it was not a 90-min job. I spent approximately seven hours on Sunday afternoon in the backyard doing my best to put that thing together, spewing popular profanity, and inventing some choice new ones that generations will be using for centuries to come. Seven hours.
My sister and brother-in-law decided to come over that evening for a BBQ dinner, so now the pressure doubled. When they arrived, my BIL was able to help with the last 45 mins of the endeavor. In the end, we vanquished the beast, and then grilled hamburgers upon its corpse. Grisly pictures below.
