mugsy... can you smoke in the winter??? YES! I do... we lve at 6000 feet elevation in the rocky mountains, and smoke/grill all year long. In the winter I sometimes have to scrape off the snow/ice, then crank that sucker up.
No problem. Now, I use gas, and a lot of people will say it's not "real" unless its charcoal... I say sure- whatever you say... I grew up in Memphis with the best BBQ in the world... IMNSHO... and I use gas- so there you go. Everyone loves my grilling and smoking.
Is it hard to grill/cook in the winter- no not really. I have the clothes. The grill has the heat- just turn it on and there you go.
