Cookin’ on The Poorman

My wife and I are avid grillers/BBQers/people-who-cook-out. We really have used our Weber Genesis gas grill more than our indoor range since purchasing it about 7 years ago. The relatively mild Seattle climate is ideal for people like us who enjoy grilling year round — now if we can just do something about the rain.

We have temporarily relocated to an apartment building which has a strict “no grills” policy. This has been extremely hard on us. We finally bit the bullet and began investigating George Foreman grills. None of the authentic Foremans met our needs for surface area so we went with a less expensive imitation made by Hamilton Beach — we have affectionately named it “The Poorman”.

The Poorman has served up some delectable substitutes including turkey burgers and chicken breasts. Its olskool “turn-and-tick” knob/timer and boxy design are a bit archaic but has proved to be a sound investment for apartment living.
