    Well, the cold clutch of winter subsided this week and allowed a little taste of spring. After I got done doing my yardwork, and managed to work a little shooting in, I got the grill out and invited a few friends over to help celebrate the coming of spring.

    Those brats never tasted so good!

    Not only did I break it out, I totally rebuilt my permanent one with new grates, burner, lava rock etc and fired her up this afternoon! It worked beautifully again! Tom Rhoads

    SS, There's never a need to put mine away!!! Last time we saw snow this far south was the winter of 77. We had flurries for about 10 minutes or so, but did not stick to anything. What kind of Brats do you cook up??? We have a German deli down here that sells some of the best ones I've ever cooked up. Glad to hear some of you up there are starting to warm up abit. Break-em all. Jeff

    This apartment I'm in, since work moved me to Indiana, won't let us have a grill. I sure do miss grilling out on the back deck at home in Pa. On the plus side, I did break out the P-gun and smoked some clays at St. Joe Valley Con. Club today. Tom, in the kitchen, cooked up a mean stripsteak for lunch.

    PS If your ever in Pa, try one of the Big Meat Shoots at Oxford Gun Club. The meat prizes from Dutch Way grill up great.

    Well a few years ago I had the charcoal grill going atleast twice a week during the winter time out in the open with no roof over my head.

    I have never went fancy yet and bought a gas grill I did use one one time while visiting a good friend and I think her husband got wind of it later I thought about calling him and saying I don't like your gas grille but thought it was the best to be quite at the time!!

    We cleaned ours out and grilled some ribs and a few chicken breasts on Friday. Sure is nice to see the weather changing. We are below normal on temps and all that means to me is when it gets hot it's gonna be really hot.. :) Dan

    I'm with k810329. I do put mine in the garage in the winter, but we use it all year round - just wheel it out. If it's below 20 degrees though it takes too long to warm up, but above that we use it.

    I went fishing instead. We caught 90 crappie that averaged over a pound each(that was fishing Friday and Saturday). I had never grilled them before but we're going to try it tomorrow after work. Jackie B.

    I grill all year round. Last month's 36" of snow only caused me a few minutes of shoveling to dig the ol'girl out. I grill at least once a week, 365.

    I've been grilling all winter, due to a kitchen remodel. But yes, did use the grill today to brown a potroast before it went into the slow cooker.

    Had to shovel about 18" of snow and a couple of pails hot water. Was able to get the Weber out of corner of patio. Couple of Ribeye's and T-Bones. Sure were great with a couple of Liennie's Firebrew.
