Grilling season is far from over! 

The Mister and I’ve been all about new ways to stay inspired by entertaining ourselves at home.

We started the year with a few new cooking appliances that inspired more creative yet easy recipes. The more new recipes we tried, the more creative we got. From oxtail stew to she-crab dip- and my favorite- Mexican casserole.

The more we created (and ate), the more cooking inspiration we gained. Then our new obsession really caught fire, and we transferred our energy outdoors.

We expanded on our DIY foodie obsession with the addition of an outdoor kitchen and entertaining area in our backyard!

By autumn, The Mister had designed and built the perfect backyard haven for hosting, hanging out and hot searing our favorite recipes!

It’s October, and we’re just getting started- kicking off grilling season just like autumn football ushers you right into the holidays.

Our favorite addition to the backyard, by far, is our Weber Summit Grill from The Home Depot

I keep telling everyone that this grill is the real deal!

Don’t have an outdoor kitchen? No worries- all you need is the Weber Summit Grill.

This grill is the life of the party and the ultimate backyard chef’s station easy enough for anyone to use- including me! 

Weber’s impressive features like a smart fuel-level check and lighted control knobs allow a novice like me to grill with confidence. 

I don’t even need The Mister on call (he’s a retired firefighter, btw). I can achieve the perfect professional sear, with safety at the forefront of it all!

After all The Mister’s hard work, he can now sit back and “watch me whip and watch me Nae Nae” in our outdoor kitchen!

But he couldn’t resist sitting still. The wonders of our Weber Grill had him at ‘Sear Station!’

Grilling with control!

It’s nearly impossible to overcook on the Weber Summit Grill with infrared uniform cooking, built-in thermometer and an easy included recipe card grilling-guide.

There are grill times and instructions for how to pre-heat the grill for direct heat (good for small, tender meat that cooks quickly- hamburgers, steaks, and veggies & shellfish).

Or indirect heat instructions to grill larger, tougher foods (roasts, whole chickens, ribs & bone-in cuts).

There’s also the handy Weber Grills app for grilling techniques, timers and tools.

Still, The Mister kept jumping in to give me a hand!

Host your household safely, while experiencing a new holiday setting— by way of your own back yard!

1. Cook your turkey or bird directly on the grill’s large cooking area of four burners with powerful heat.

2. This Weber Grill is designed to work like a convection oven with a large lid closure to keep the heat from escaping while cooking. I see a “Best Bird” award in your Thanksgiving future!

3. Even more- there’s the Weber Summit’s rotisserie for whole chickens with a convenient slide-out grease tray and disposable drip pan. Y’all, having your own rotisserie at home— priceless! It’s foodie eye-candy watching it rotate!

4. Enjoy autumn and holiday nights out back and make hot cocoa or yummy warm apple cider using the grill’s convenient side burner with adjustable temperature settings.

5. If you’re an ole grill pro, you’ll appreciate the autumn ambiance of the built-in smoke-box. Experiment with different wood chips to find the perfect smoke flavor to suit your taste!

  1. I love the way your outdoor cooking area looks. We live in an apartment complex, and only have a small patio (and management doesn’t allow grilling on the patios). When my husband grills, he has to haul his tiny grill out of the storage room and then do his barbecuing away from our apartment and then carry the food back to our apartment. One of my dreams is to one day have a yard (even a tiny yard), where we can grill, eat, and relax right there. It would be so nice to have a grill that has the features that you’ve described about this grill.

This grill would be the perfect gift for him. Knowing the delivery is free as well as the assembly is an added plus because he’s a great cook but he’s not very handy with putting things together. I love the pole for the chicken or the turkey. Thank you for sharing your family with us.

  23. We’ve always grilled pretty much all year long. This past summer all my boys and granddaughters were over every weekend and we would grill and have a picnic in the yard so we could stay apart.
