I Own Rush Limbaugh's Charcoal Grill
I own a lot of cool shit--a lot of it was either free or very cheap. In 1999, I was surfing Ebay looking for some cool King of the Hill stuff (I love the show). Anyhow, I noticed an ad for a promo KOTH grill for sale. It was the grill that Fox sent to media people prior to the debut of the show in 1997. The one for sale had been sent to Limbaugh at the EIB building in New York. Even though the character Hank Hill uses propane, the promo grill was a red Weber portable charcoal grill (that retails for $30). It had a KOTH sticker on it and a KOTH video came along with it. The minimun bid was $50; I was the only bidder. It was mailed to me in the orginal box sent to Limbaugh inside of a larger box. I had the seller write a brief history of the item (for provenance--I watch Antiques Roadshow).
