I do not know if I would say it is dangerous. The rust will not hurt you. If there are holes though then you would need to be careful of hot coals falling out where they should not.

Do get the Weber! Ours has been outside in MN winter weather for over 5 years now, no rusting problems. We grill all year so we dont put it away. Ok I dont grill all year, I make him do it Nov-March if at all possible. :)

Man, you guys and gals gotta move your grills closer to the door.
I think I like grilling more in winter than I do summer.

The door is flanked by 2 grills, the big gas one on one side the Weber on the other.
Then you dont have to shovel much snow to get to it....
I need to move somewhere warmer.

HAH! Don't we all. I think it got up to 14 today, but the sun was out anyway.
I imagine grilling in the winter is tough on a grill, that's why I went stainless with my last one. I never looked, but I imagine there's condensation as it's cooling down, which we know isn't going to be good.

Most of the cheap metal grills, gas or charcoal, will rust out in a couple of years, depending on your locale and how you take care of them.

A few rust spots won't hurt any thing unless food touches them or they pose a hazard. Too many rust holes and the functionality is tossed out the window.

I live about 3 miles from salt water and any type of metal grill is a pain for me to maintain. I upgraded to ceramic in 1999 and haven't had to replace one yet.

There is no such thing as no grilling weather.
OK, heavy rain is, but otherwise...

Let's grill! :)

That's what umbrellas are for.
