We're getting some cold temperatures here for the next couple of days and if the air was calm they wouldn't be that bad, but wind is blowing pretty good and with it coming directly at the garage doors it tends to swirl when it gets inside. That's OK, Mrs. Chicken wants pasta tonight. :wink:

Anybody else experiencing a temporary hiatus?

Yes. Up here it starts in November and lasts till about mid-March..... :D
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.

It's 5 degrees here and the wind chill is -13, but we don't have any precip. I just lit the charcoal for a stir-fry lunch. Before the weather came I moved the grill to the driveway where we have a good wind break, so it really doesn't feel that bad. And the stir-fry only takes three minutes, so...

Perfect timing on this thread, cooked some big pork chops over the weekend, noticed the egg took a lot longer getting to temperature. That ceramic must have been coooooold... :mrgreen:

It hit -16F last night but that's supposed to be the end of it...18F today and then highs above freezing forecast for at least the next 4 days.

I have a package of chicken thighs that will be grilled for Sunday noon dinner, and am thinking a sesame-garlic theme right now...

It got into the 20's here in Northwest Florida. I had to put on my thermal flip flops.

On the opposite side of this conversation..

Was sitting on the couch last night and my wife says "Its going to be warm the next couple days (50's) think you could fire up the grill"

Here in Minnesota, if it gets warm enough, I'll throw some steaks on to the grill, but I have to wait till March/April to bbq... NOT FUN..

That's about the same here. Unless I can figure out a way to superinsulate the CG Outlaw, it won't do much good to use it till April.
