I present to you... MEGAGRILLAZORD.
Yes, I have made good on last year's promise. If I learned to handle the grilling part properly over the course of last summer, I could get the add-on accessories for the grill - the side fire box for smoking, and the motorized rotisserie.
Assembly was... interesting. See, the thing is, the holes required in the torso of MegaGrillaZord are not good holes to have in your grill if it's just, well, the grill. So I was required to bang out holes with a hammer and a screwdriver and, in the case of three screw holes, the fucking drill. I know. There are technically still a pair of semicircles that allow you to close the grill over the rotisserie that I haven't knocked out yet because of the hassle.
Also, I'm glad I'm kind of done buying stuff from Char-Griller, because the packing slip for my stuff had a business card with Bible verses stapled to it. Which is just tacky. I don't know if it's company policy or just a guy in shipping that they indulge, but it's tacky. I'm looking to burn wood, not nail a guy to it.
How does it work? I don't know yet. But I'll find out soon, because I've got some pork shoulder and some beef chuck and some giant pieces of applewood and hickory from Menard's and I'm really hoping I can get the inside up to 225-250 soon, because it's already 11:00. Worst case scenario is that I can finish it in the oven, of course.
