Imperfect but forgiven
I used to grill during the winter with a propane tank, but I had to replace too many regulators which apparently don't care for the cold... that got kind of expensive. At least with charcoal, I don't have to worry about a failing regulator, i just have to double the amount of charcoal and try to minimize the number of times I open the grill cover. Even with twice the charcoal the grill won't get near as hot as it does during the summer months when it is slightly warmer. When the USA got too liberal for me several decades ago I looked in to becoming a Canadian but soon discovered that Canada was way ahead of the USA liberal-wise... so I compromised and moved to Alaska.You sure you aren't a Canuck like me and George and Bernice???? Sort of thing we like to do! Although George says the propane gas just doesn't work right after 30 below C so 30 below F, that is way colder and you got a serious point there. Chilly. Parka weather standing out there doing the steaks.
