CLOSED! Weber’s One Touch Silver Charcoal Grill – Giveaway

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on June 27, 2010

Winner announced tomorrow!

Are you a GIRL…who likes to GRILL?!?!?

I am.

When Weber first approached me about working with them on a Girls Grill Too campaign, I was ecstatic! We currently have a Weber grill that has been nothing but wonderful…but is on its last leg…or should I say grate!

I had the opportunity to speak with PR director at Weber recently and was struck by her passion for educating consumers about why Weber is the best grill on the market and why it is a worthy investment. She has the same desire and drive about Weber that I have about sharing the $5 Dinners concept, recipes and other money saving tips with you!

You might think of the name and brand of Weber as being “the expensive” line of grills. And while some of the grills they offer are more than my mortgage payment, not all of them are! They have a fantastic line of budget friendly grills too!!!

I believe that when it comes time to purchase a grill…you have to look at it is an extension of your kitchen…as if it is that 5th kitchen appliance! It may live outside, but it does the same thing as an oven!!! And I think it cooks better than an oven does too!

So, the Weber website…I was struck not only by its mouthwatering photography and its navigational ease, but also by all the FREE resources that us girls (and you guys too!) can take advantage of. Check these out…

You can also learn more about how to make the most out of your grill, get more mileage out of your grill, and how to maintain your grill by joining the Weber Nation community. Weber Nation members have access to online grilling classes, audio podcasts and an interactive recipe box! (I’ve already spotted a few new recipes I’d like to try out on the grill!!!)

I also learned a few new tricks from Weber’s Grilling Tips as well! I love how they have some many fantastic resources to equip the newbie grillers…and even the grilling afficionados too!

And if you’re a “girl who grills” or you want to become a “girl who grills”…you definitely need to check out all these great resources! I want to encourage and empower you to feel comfortable standing in front of the grill!!!

But it would help to have a grill…right?!

How about one of these?!!?

In celebration of the July 4th holiday and the most popular grilling out day of the year, I’m giving away a Weber One Touch Silver Charcoal Grill! Read the entry details below…

(But before you enter, you need to know…the average wait time to talk to a LIVE person at Weber’s Customer Service Center is 43 seconds!!! Don’t believe me…try it. It’s quite impressive!)

I live in Florida and ONLY grill for 6 months of the year! My oven raises the temp in my kitchen 8 degrees! Love grilled pineapple with brown sugar & cayenne!

I love to grill because you can put all courses on the grill (meat/fish, potatoes, veggie, and fruit for dessert) and in a short time you have a hot meal without a lot of work or clean-up.

We don’t have a grill, but would love to. I love all of the fresh summer produce on the grill–asparagus to zucchini, I love them all (fruit too:)

My favorite combination is steak, purple onion, green peppers and bacon. We haven’t made any kabobs this year yet – I need to put the ingredients on my shopping list!

I love chicken, mushroom, red onion, and pineapple kebabs :)

I also love steak with various colored peppers and onions for my kebabs

I love to grill because it doesn’t heat up my house!

I love grilling because my husband likes to do it. I love simple foods on the grill, like steak and grilled asparagus.

I would really love to win the grill and get that great charcoal taste again!! We do a lot of burgers and pile them high with fixins. Also grill in the winter using deer meat.

Love to grill, food seems to taste better. Good ol hamburgers are my fav!

When you use a little ingenuity when your grilling you can get a restaurant quality meal for half the price (or less) and it usually tastes better! That’s why we like to grill!

My very first grill was this same Weber – I received it when I graduated from college and moved into my first apartment – about 20 years ago! Okay, that was a little difficult to confess! My husband and I just recently had to let that grill go during our communities “large item trash pickup”. It had served us as long as it could and now would be a perfect time to win a new one! We love to grill. Our favorite is chicken – and we just recently discovered Kraft’s Light Asian Toasted Sesame dressing that works really well as a simple marinade!

We love to grill out. Food just tastes better.

Pineapple kabobs…mmm! I just picked up some fresh pineapple that I was planning to grill with the chicken legs my son adores!

Great new idea: to 1lb. HB. add 4 slices cooked crumbled bacon, 1/8 cup Mayo and 1/8 cup BBQ sauce, 1 1/2 t. Steak seasoning, 1 1/2 T Onion.

Delish! Great on a new Weber grill !!!!

I love to grill…..for many reasons.
1) Keeps my house cool (no using the hot oven)
2) I like sitting on my back porch and enjoying the woods in my backyard
3) Food always tastes so much better grilled
4) My family loves a good cookout

I have NEVER made kebobs! There, I said it! I almost feel embarrassed!
I want to….I just never have! Thanks for all the great ideas.

Love to grill and use those rosemary pieces for pork, onions, and fresh vegetables right from the garden. I have tons of rosemary, and it needs to be used.

Reply

Barbara July 3, 2010 at 8:20 pm

I love grilling anything, but bacon wrapped giant scallops, pineapple chunks, zucchini, and red onions (marinated in and basted with a soy sauce-based marinade) is fantastic over rice!

ATL Cook July 3, 2010 at 8:20 pm

The grilling turkey–I went to a Girl Scout leader workshop a few years ago. We baked using solar ovens, and did a turkey on a stake–12llb in the ground and covered it with a metal 5 gallon bucket. GOOD—YES.

Just me I am cooking for, so the extra is saved for later. Love to use fresh herbs on the grill with vegetables in that grill basket. Am eyeing those kebab flexible holders at WS–perfect to do just a few at one time. I’d also try my hand at grilling fruit. Maybe eve a fruit pizza on the grill. You can do vegetable pizza, so why not fruit on the grill.

Grill combo #2 – tin foil packets – especially potatoes, onions, and garlic. For a one pouch meal, and a chicken breast, hamburger, small steak, etc. Make a tossed salad, and dinner is served.

Barbara July 3, 2010 at 8:30 pm

@Barbara, should read “add”, not “and”
