Grilling in the rain

Over the weekend the weather forecasted was rain, and on Saturday we had 25 people over so I HAD to grill the food. So I cooked up an idea for a grilling "tent." It just so happens that the roof of my dining room and the roof of my screen porch are about 6' apart. Check it out.

If you have a setup like this works excellent. I paid $8 for the tarp, eye bolts, and small bungees. Plus I can use the tarp with my pickup too! We didn't actually get much rain, but the shade was nice.

My roofs are a bit higher and a bit wider I think, but I am sure I will be able to rig something up. I needed to buy some new tarps anyway so now they will be able to do double duty.

neither rain, nor snow, nor gloom of night will keep dedicated grillers from making their rounds.........................

"Grilling in the rain"

Is that like singing in the rain, only hotter?

When I cannot change the menu due to uncooperative weather, I will employ an umbrella and roll the bbq halfway into the garage. Naturally, this only works with the gas grill. I cannot cook on an open fire pit this way.

We roll with the changes. DH always checks out the radar before we get started.
