FWIW, I've used a grill in the pouring rain and with snow on the ground. A grill can be quite versatile if it's near a door and sheltered from the worst of the elements.


I'm in TX too and we use the grill as an outdoor oven/stove. So I agree. I think we spent about $600 on ours about 6 or 7 years ago. This was after DH had ordered replacement parts for pretty much every bit of the previous one and we finally had to let it go. It was a Bakers and Chefs and was awesome.

The reason I mentioned "grilling season" is because there are folks further north than we are who only use their grills when there is no snow on the ground. My stepdad was one of those. He was from MN, and was the first person to ever mention grilling season to me. DH almost fell over when he did! Anyway, the idea of spending $900 on something that would be kept in storage from October through March every year just seemed wasteful.

And before anyone starts: yes, I am fully aware that there are many, many people who live in cold climates and grill years 'round. PRobably while wearing a swimsuit!
