I have been a big fan of grilling outside for many years, especially in the summer months. Given the weather in New England I have to say I was more of a fair weather grill guy...none of that grilling in my parka and snow boots for me.
I've continue the tradition since moving to SoCal, and of course here with our weather I can grill out virtually every day of the year unless it's pouring rain...which is rare.
We have wonderful views of the canyon, looking to the south, behind our house and the sunlight when the sun sets reminds me of the light in Tuscany. The other evening the clouds looking to the east were lit up by the setting sun.
Just a bit more pleasure added to the grilling experience!
