I used to often grill in cold weather not so much since moving here some years ago.
I used to live in a house where the back patio had the house on three sides of it and a tin roof over it.
The roof was rather high and made out of metal and so I didn't have to worry about it catching fire.
The only part of the patio that was open was the side that faced the back yard and about 30 feet back there was a large two car garage/workshop that blocked most of the wind from that direction and so I didn't mind grilling out during cold weather.
After that, I lived in a house where the house was on two sides of the patio and there was a large workshop behind the patio and so it was fairly well-protected from the cold as well.
Here however, I actually have both a large charcoal grill and a dedicated smoker but they are both on the deck, which is open on three sides and two stories off the ground and so I don't do much winter grilling these days.
Dinner tonight is going to be a bit of a potluck.
I have some leftover leek and potato soup, some leftover marinara sauce, some leftover fettuccine and I'm going toast some grilled ham and cheese sandwiches.
