Following a delightful lunch @ FirstWatch with Kelsey, the boys and Danielle, we went home where my own Al Borlund & I tore into the grill assembly.
Photo at right indicates the state in which we began.
This box weighed approximately 8,000 lbs. I needed a red flyer wagon to get the thing back to the deck. Once it was located on the deck, we set out to prepare the work area.
- Ryobi cordless drill with auxillary phillips head: CHECK!
- Ipod and dock set to Mute Math: CHECK!
- Instructions ready to toss in trash: CHECK!
The instructions indicated we should be able to set it up in 45 minutes. We managed to crunch it down to two hours, after realizing that we had attached the two base leg stands on opposite intended ends. Given the fact that one side has wheels and the other doesn't (and the frame compensates for this) it caused the entire grill to list portside like the Poseidon. After doing a Nascar style suspension swap, we were good to go.
Tonight, we grill!
