Central Texans Have Sent Us Some Really Ugly Grill Pics This Year
At the start of every summer, we ask Central Texans to show us pics of their dad's ugly, rusty, nasty, broken down nightmare of a grill for a chance to win a new one.
Sometimes I worry that we won't get many replies. I mean, we've seen real monsters, and it's like...how many more are really out there? Have we already seen the worst of the worst?
Well, that was stinkin' thinkin' on my part. Of course there's no shortage of worn-out grills, because Texans are grill addicts who fix things as long as they can before reluctantly throwing them out to get something new. Heck no, there'll never be a shortage of well-loved grills that are covered in rust and being held together with scraps and wire.
There may be a certain charm to an old, reliable grill that's fed countless family, friends, and neighbors, but after a while you have to sit dad down and say, "Look, we know you love your old grill, but it's an ecological disaster waiting to happen and we need to talk about getting you a new one."
It's not an easy talk to have, but if you know a dad clinging to a grill handing on by a strand of rust, don't wait. Talk to him about it today.
Anyway, we've once again received a bunch of pics of grills that are hangin' in there, but really need to be retired.
We've thrown some of the worst offenders in the gallery below. If you think you can beat any of these, you still have a couple of days to prove it by submitting a pic here. You could win your dad a new grill, plus an Amazon Echo Show and gift cards from our awesome sponsors.
