I usually grill in the winter. Problem right now is there's about 3 1/2 feet of snow covering my deck! Too much work to shovel a path. I'm already sick of clearing the driveway and sidewalk!

I grill all year long. It helps preserve my sanity, especially during long winters. Nothing like ribs to bring a little taste of summer to February.

No reason to not grill in the winter. My Traeger wood pellet grill runs all year.

I cook on my grill 4-5 times a week, year-round.

I have a grill pan that I use. It's not the same, but since I can't stand the cold it'll do.

I love grilling year-round too, but I replaced the Weber kettle with a gas grill on my deck so I'm cooking in just a couple minutes. Make it easy on the chef.

I've grilled year round for years.. Last night was Salmon on the gas grill, a few weeks ago, fired up the Webber for a turkey.. How many of you have a cast iron griddle and cook bacon, eggs and pancakes on your grill? Best way to keep your kitchen clean!

I've had a Big Green Egg for almost 2 years and rarely go more than a week without cooking something on it. I smoked a 6lb pork shoulder all day on New Years. It was 5° outside, but it held a steady 260° for 12 hours inside the Egg without me having to open the lid, adjust the vents, or add more charcoal. Best. Purchase. Ever.

"This story is so damn pathetic I can't believe this. I am writing this from Maui, losers." Ouch! Maui is nice, but it's not nearly as warm and tropical as the Bahamas or even Cancun. Plus, too many bugs. Oh, and the water is too cold!
