This Texan’s gotta brand new grill!!!!!

I moved to North Carolina from Texas in 1995.  I had never seen a gas grill before moving to NC.  I have really been wanting a charcoal grill for several years.  My husband and I were in our “fav store” Lowe’s and I decided this was the day for me to buy my charcoal grill.  So off we go armed with everything we need for GRILLING TIME!  Next stop Fresh Market, (NC’s Whole Foods) for something to cook!

My husband and my son were so sweet to put the grill together.

Finally put together, we’re ready to start grilling!

The best charcoal briquets are a must have!  I love Stubbs, took this picture on Instagram.

My son Andrew is so good at putting the charcoal in the grill and stacking it just right.  My next purchase will be a Chimney Charcoal Starter.

Andrew is in charge os soaking the wood chips, which gives the food a great smoky flavor.

Charcoal is perfect and ready for the ribs, chicken, and steaks.  I love this Stonewall Kitchen rub.

These ribs have been covered with the Stonewall Kitchen rub.  I place them in the refrigerator to marinade for as long as I can.

This is one of my FAV BBQ sauces.  I buy it at our Fresh Market, which is a store in NC much like Whole Foods.

We love to cook ribs, they are much easier than you think so give them a try.

I hope you give “grilling” a try and see for yourself just how much fun it is and how amazing your food will taste!
