I Wish There Was A Grill Renting Service

I have a grill on my back patio. It’s a decent sized Weber charcoal. I paid for it, assembled it, and allowed it to take up a decent percentage of the small patio space I have available. However, I think I have used it maybe twice this year. Last year wasn’t much better.

I got to thinking, it would be nice if there was a grill rental service. If there was, I could toss my grill and just rent one whenever I needed it. Sure, it might be expensive to rent something like that…but I just don’t use it very often.

After all, two or three times a year? The grill takes up space 365 days a year. If I just rented one when I grilled, then it wouldn’t take up space all the time. My patio is probably only fifteen feet by fifteen feet or so (I’ve never measured and I’m bad with estimation). A grill takes up a lot of that space given the amount that I use it.

Sure, I could use it more…but I just don’t end up craving grilled food that much. I’d be doing it just to justify the grill space, not because I wanted grilled food. Of course, when I want it, then I really want it. Grill rental would be a viable solution if anyone had that kind of service, that or burying it between use so it didn’t take up surface space (which isn’t really an option either since my patio is concrete).

Mind you, I do realize that this is most definitely a first world problem. I recognize that and am suitably shamed.

    Most party supply places rent grills. The problem is knowing that you want one the exact second you want one – it’s not as flexible as Zipcar. But, you could also rent a chocolate fountain and a bouncy house while you’re there.
