In an effort to simplify our lives and find the old alternative to the gas grill craze, I purchased a small portable barbeque grill for a song and took it home for our upcoming holiday festivities.
Unpacking this new purchase, I found instructions and what appeared to be thousands of bolts labeled, AA, BB, CC, DD, etc. that corresponded with a large diagram. It didn’t look simple.
So with the help of mama, we laid this large project on the living room table, divided the bolts and set to work, screwing and unscrewing feet and lids and handles, taking a full hour and a half to assemble this our new holiday grill.
