He always gets suspicious when I tell him an upcoming gift will be something "we'll both enjoy"...guess it was because of the bread machine I gave him for Father's Day one year! He liked the bread, so he shouldn't complain. But I think the Weber Smokey Mountain wood smoker was more appreciated. It came a little early, arrived today. I found it for $224 with free shipping from Amazon.com...best deal I could find! He has a ridiculously enormous stainless steel propane grill, one with BTU ratings that'd heat a house, but it's not the same as a real smoker.
