You mean that cart you built from scrap to house one of you ol' kettles you had laying around???  8)

Sorry, nice attempt, but................it's way too noticeable & she knows, more or less, how much time I spend  out in the yard or garage....... :-X

I find the more kettles you acquire the easier they are to slide into the stable without raising suspicion
Sometimes you need a plan
I have 3 storage areas and depending on the acquisition and who's home at the time will be the deciding factor as to where it hides out
For instance my first WSM , its unusual shape made it easy for the Missus to pick out in a line up
Luckily when I arrived home with it , no one was home so it went straight to the back shed with a tarp over it . Where it stayed until one sunny morning 2mths later I decided to clean out the back shed
I then moved it into the work shed , she didn't even bat an eyelid
And if she did happen to notice I was armed with a few comebacks like- ' that old thing , I've had that for ages out in the back shed' or ' don't you remember me picking that up dirt cheap a couple of months ago?' Also by this time there is no evidence of eBay or the like transactions and the cash can't be cross referenced with bank statements and the like
A plan , you must always have a plan!
Gotta say though she has the kids trained up quite well. If they spot me sneaking in a new grill they'll run inside to mum shouting 'Dads got another kettle'
I'm only 2 or 3 kettles away from being that creepy guy down the street with all the Webers

Buckie is moving in to a whole new era.

I have been regretting not buying the Sequoia in Fort Worth a few months back because I was afraid of the woodwork.  It was $75 and on craigslist for weeks.  Recently put a wanted ad up for it and the seller told me it had sold.

Ron.......
 Like I told Ray  ( Hell Fire Grill ) everybody will get a piece of the pie !!!!!

Nice one!

Another downside is, she's more than sharp enough to notice a new or different color.........

etruax...... I'm a dodo, but fear is irrealavent (<sp?) because of all the combined knowledge around here..... ;D

Thanks also, Hogsy, but there's only so much square area available......I'll just take my lumps....... :o

Buckie, your wife won't notice a wok will she? Or if a 22 magically turns into a 26r

The wok arrived awhile ago, but it hangs up out of the way......

The skewer set & corn / tater racks wouldn't have been so bad, but they came with TWO KETTLES....... ::)
