So here is the purchase we made last weekend for the farm. We have always wanted one of these grills. They are the kind that are used at National Parks and Campgrounds across the United States. In fact, when we've shown friends and coworkers, they say "we used those when we went camping!" We really like cooking over wood and/or the hardwood natural briquettes, and these are the kind that should hold up for years and years.
We had to do some research as there are plenty out there that "look" like the originals but there is only one original. The others are made with a thinner metal and probably don't have the longevity as the ones made for parks. These are made by Pilot Rock, who has the contract to provide them for parks around the country. We ended up buying them from Northern Tool because they have free shipping when it's "site to store". When an item weighs a lot, it can save money in shipping fees if you live near one of the stores.
They do sell them through Amazon, click HERE to see the variety. Just remember that the Amazon link does offer them from several resellers.
We didn't get just one...
We got two!

We think this is where we are going to put them. Since they have to be put into the ground with post holes and then set in concrete, we should probably make sure where they are going to go before we make them permanent.

This is the area off the front porch (this photo was actually taken from the stairs of the porch). It's fairly close to the house so we don't have to walk two acres with food and it's just around the tree from the future outdoor dining area that will be under Barnabas the old mesquite tree. We think it's the best spot for them, give or take a few feet.
Eventually, once I get some holes dug, we'll get them in place and start doing some grilling! Hopefully later this Summer.
