I just love to barbeque.
If I could barbeque every meal my family eats, I would.
However, when fall is setting in, I feel sad because I know it will be too cold to barbeque outside for much longer. Every year, as the leaves begin to fall, I cover up the barbeque and it is a sad day. However, this year, I left for two weeks, during the fall, for work. When I came home, my wife had a surprise for me. She had had an HVAC company install underfloor heating in our screened in porch. She had also had workers install weather resistant covers over the screening and a vent for the barbeque. There was even an outdoor space heater hooked up in case the underfloor heating was not strong enough. In short, I can now safely barbeque outdoors all year round. Between the semi-covered screens, the heated floor, and the space heater, I should stay warm enough on the porch no matter what the weather is doing. Needless to say, this is the best gift I have ever gotten and I was not expecting it at all. All the shops put the barbeque stuff on sale this time of year too so I was able to stock up and be ready for some winter barbecuing. I don’t imagine I will be able to find much barbeque stuff, this high north, in the dead of winter. I am probably the only one with a heated porch and the means and desire to barbeque when there is a blizzard going on outside.
