Grilling in the heart of winter proves you love BBQ, makes you tough, and drives the neighbors crazy. The only place I shovel on my deck is a path to the grill. That said, it sure is nice when your beer doesn't freeze.

My charcoal grill rusted out and I had it hauled off awhile ago. I bought a new all stainless propane grill last month and I'm keeping it on my enclosed sun porch so I can use it more. I open 2 of the windows and have one fan in and another out so I don't get smoked out. I expect to be able to grill year round with this setup...



So far it's working out but I miss the charcoal flavor. I use smoker chips with the gas grill but it's not the same. Costco has those Kamodo ceramic charcoal grills on sale and I'm thinking hard about getting one but I'm not sure if I want to spend that much on another grill this year...

I know the feeling. I retired 11 years ago with a 6 pack at 200 now ive got a full case at about 250! Funny thing is even with my hetic work schedule I always managed to work out at least 3 times a week. I haven't been to a gym in 5 years now that ive got the time.

I think Iím going to keep eating like this I feel better and Iíve gained about 25 lbs since I retired. Need to get back down to around 200# again.

i'm glad other folks didn't want a small purple painted grill

if they'd had some with pink unicorns or smurfs i'd have
bought those if they'd had a $4.00 price tag on them.

just me, but i'd never spend that much on something to cook outside with.
the best meat i've ever had that someone else cooked was cooked up on
a pit made of dry stacked cinder blocks topped with a homemade grate
we welded out of rebar and expanded metal. oak and mesquite for wood.
everything but the meat was free. i'd be hard pressed to ever get several
hundred dollars worth of enjoyment from a charcoal grill.
what is it those things cost ? 600-700 dollars on sale ?

While I really want one of those ceramic grills, when push comes to shove, my money always goes somewhere more important. I saw a video on how to make a ceramic grill from a couple large terracotta flower pots. I might try that someday but for now the plan is to wait until grills go on sale at the end of summer and see what I can get cheap.


I can use smoker packets on my gas grill for now...

I think that's the same video I saw a year or so back. It looks like it would work but the seal looks like it would burn...

^ ^ ^ ^ that's for sure^ ^ ^
like maybe a cart full of good steaks and chops
and stick the rest back in your pocket.
now. . . . maybe if i were 20 years old again and made buckets of
money like i did back then, i might spend lots of money on a
special expensive cooker of some kind, but not a grand.
J.F.G. when i was at the hardware store earlier to get some bolts, in the entrance way
they had those big green daddy-o or whatever cookers featured "on sale " .
the smaller one was $999.00 and change, and the larger one was
like $1200.00-$1500.00 and change.
lotta money (to me) to cook a piece of meat.
i think they're more for prestige and such because i can't see how
they'd do a better job than something costing $100.00 or less.
not to mention it getting ripped off or broken in a hailstorm or the like.
if i were to have one of those and i came outside and found it in pieces
i'd probably have a stroke right there on the spot.
