Do you use your grill in the winter?

OK this question is more for our friends in the North and areas where it gets VERY cold in the winter. Are you the type of person who needs to grill year round? Do you shovel a path to the grill in 4 feet of snow?

What about in the rain for those who live in nicer climates? Do you stand outside with an umbrella (or even without) and use your grill?

I am definitely one of those people. The is very little weather that will keep me from my grill. I just love using it so much.

I grill year round except if it gets below 0. And that all depends if there is a football game on. I always grill out for a football game.8-)

If we didn't grill in the rain in Oregon we'd never grill!

Depends on the wind chill factor! If I lose feeling in my fingers within a couple minutes it's a No Go! I've grilled in zero degree temps and no wind with no problem! Also, I have a covered porch so shoveling snow is usually not a factor.

count another grill addict! i grill all year long, so long as it's not torrential rain or snow at the time. i have dug out a path in the snow many times, so long as it has stopped. my weber kettle is under a big apple tree in the backyard, but if it's precipitatin' too much, it ends up being too difficult to keep lit and control the temp.

I grill all year around, unless it is a blizzard outside. I have not grilled at all this winter because my grill is not working. I am going to buy a new one this Spring.

Being in So. Cal. there is no problem grilling the year around.

In rainey weather, I found that I can wheel my grill up to the patio door and it will be under the eve of the house. I stand in the house and grill away The odors that drifts in the house, with the smoke is a problem at times. Just whets the appitite
