Sunbeam Patiomaster ... no more
Back in 1993, I lacked the $35 needed to purchase a grill. So I put a Sunbeam Patiomaster on layaway, gradually paying off the asking price before finally being able to take it home to my college apartment.
It served me well. I cooked countless dinners for hundreds of friends and family members on the Patiomaster, used it for years even before I had a patio.
It's gone now, tied to the back of a scrappers truck. But before it went away, I was able to cook one last time on my beloved Sunbeam Patiomaster.
I've moved on to a brand new Weber, but it's not the same.
The king is dead. Long live the king.
