She noticed, thats why she bought you one! haha

Not nearly as much as I used to. Before 2009, I probably grilled 4 or 5 times a week, even in winter. Living in Prince George, that says a lot.

The past two years I've been learning how to prepare Oriental and Indian cuisines, and they are not grill happy foodstyles.

I've mastered 25 or so dishes by memory from these areas, and will probably go back to grilling again on a regular basis this summer.

I tend to do things in cycles. Always have.

2-3x/week lately, but in the summer I'm probably around 7-8. That obviously includes some lunches. And I use propane 98% of the time, but sometimes I'll break down my WSM and use the bottom section as a charcoal grill, or I'll sear a tuna steak on my chimney charcoal starter, ala Alton Brown. Charcoal definitely adds a subtle difference to taste, but no way I would grill that much using a charcoal grill, plus charcoal seems so darn expensive compared to propane. And I do enjoy cooking on the stove, too, so sometimes all that's going on the grill is corn on the cob when it's in season, or other grilled veggies/sides. I'm pretty sure I would not grill as much if I used charcoal exclusively.

I chose "2-3 times" as this represents a good balance for the year, not including what is done on the pit. My motto is "Gas is an abomination". It is only good for crawfish boils, steaming crabs, blackening etc., but not to direct or indirect cook with!

For me, it's the same with Craig. I usually grill 2 - 3 times weekly, I just love the flavored of a grilled meat and veges. :)

I grill whenever I can, and when it is just too darn cold or it is too darn windy (happens here often), then I use my indoor George forman grill with the removable plates. It isn't the same, but it is good in its own way. In the summer, I try to grill at least 4 times a week, but in the winter I have lots of other things I like to make in the oven.
