Dang, Otzi, I think that thing has a higher blue book value than my car! (No joke, three years ago, my car only had a blue book value of $650.) It does look like it would surely get the job done.
You all are awesome. Between the recommendations here, and my looking at Azon, I have price points ranging from $70 to $400. I'll do a little more research and see which will both suit my current needs and allow me to grow into it. Thank you!

Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.
No matter which one you buy, here's an idea for your first grind: buy best ribeye steak you can find, trim any gristle, but not the fat, mix with a bit of salt and pepper, make a burger patty and grill it medium rare. Top with cheddar cheese and slightly carmelized onions. Eat it wrapped in a big lettuce leaf.
