How to Grill in Sault Ste. Marie

To successfully grill in Sault Ste. Marie, you first have to understand that before you can light the fire, you have to get to the grill. The following pictures will tell the tale better than I can in words.

Mother Nature dropped 12 inches of fresh snow on us last night. But for someone who wants a grilled steak, it's all in a day's work.

Because you can't do THAT in cast iron! I did 2 inch thick ribeyes tonight.
I didn't have the snow though.

Just wait until next year, when I have two of my grandkids visiting. We will be making our outdoor fort, complete with snow chairs, snow beds, and a snow dining table from which we will sip hot cocoa from our warm mugs. There is nothing quite like eating or drinking hot food from a snow table. It's something that everyone should get to experience.

You should have seen some of the kooky ways we heated food while ice fishing, as a teen with my best buds. Sometimes it got very primitive, but always tasted great, and helped warm us up.

My biggest meal ever came after a day long snowmobile safari with a club my parents belonged to. I was eighteen at the time, and weighed less than 100 lbs. 3 plates of beans coupled with 19 hot dogs were eaten in one sitting, with a big mug of hot cocoa of course.

A day in the cold, working, sure builds up your teenage appetite.

I hadn't realized that it was called Sault Ste. Marie on your side of the border too.

Call your nearest ski resort and have them come over with their snow making machine.

I'm curious how far from your door was the grill? I appears to be a significant distance.

I keep my grill about two feet from the back slider on the deck. I can stand in my dining room and grill through the open door.

Chrous from a vinyl LP that we have from when KGB radio (101.5FM) called Home-Grown, that featured local artist songs.

No snow in Escondido. not many avacodo trees anymore, from what I hear.

I lived in the San Diego area for about twelve years. I lived on Coranado Island, San Diego, El Cajon, Santee, and Lakeside at various times.

A lot of folks are doing that now. Sure saves on electricity or gas for the home. And if you live near a wooded area, it makes sense to have a wood/charcoal BBQ grill.
