My suburban life is complete, plus very long thoughts on urbanism and culture war
It takes some effort to set a house fully on fire with a properly functioning grill, but one thing they definitely do not play well with is vinyl siding. Picture a cheap takeout container in a microwave. Several years back, it was a serious buzzkill at a friend's Superbowl party he was hosting at his shiny new house in the 'burbs.
You made a good choice spending the extra money for a Weber! I've had a Sprit (the smaller version of the Genesis) for like 10-12 years now and it's still solid. As you said, should I need to update anything, parts are readily available- they're sold on the shelf at my local hardware store in fact. Good read as always!
In addition to initially misunderstanding the grill laws, you have apparently also misunderstood emission testing laws. I’ve lived in SW VA since 2nd grade, and I’ve never had emissions testing done, much less every two years. That must be a NOVA things, not a VA statewide thing. Enjoyed the article nonetheless and I also love my grill. 😆
