The Mariani family from Roslyn, New York, is a family that loves to grill out – and usually it’s oldest son, Jacob, 18, who serves as the family’s head griller. So before Jacob left home to begin his freshman year at Emerson College, he made a video to make sure his mom, Teri, knew exactly how to use their grill.
As it turns out, their grill isn’t any old grill; it’s a BBQ Pro from Sears. Teri and her family like their grill so much that she recently contacted Sears Holdings to share, “All summer we have been using the BBQ Pro grill from Sears, which we love better than our old grill.”
Jacob knew his mom wasn’t too familiar with using the BBQ Pro. Realizing there is still plenty of time to grill outdoors before the colder temperatures arrive, Jacob decided to make this step-by-step instructional video for her.
“I felt so touched when Jacob made that video,” said Teri. “Now I can grill with confidence.”
Jacob enjoys grilling hamburgers, chicken and whole Branzino fish on the BBQ Pro for Teri, his dad, Vincent and younger sister Hannah, 16. A film major at Emerson, Jacob debuted a short film in August at the HollyShorts Film Festival in Hollywood, California. His family is proud of his accomplishment but they’re particularly delighted with his how-to grilling video.
“I will miss the grill—and my family—in that order! Only kidding!” said Jacob. “The grill is in mom’s hands now and I’m confident she’ll be able to handle it.”
Whether you’re a beginner griller or an outdoor master chef, Sears has the grill to fit your needs.
