I should have tried that as an excuse - really, I just try lots of ideas. I expect they will ban me from the kitchen eventually.

A good fire, a hot BBQ pit or a propane burner and if needed the awning out; options are wide open. Over new years, we cooked cabbage rolls under the awning in an electric outside oven.

I grill 365 days a year. Well, maybe I don't hit them all but I grill straight through winter. Check out the Broil King Keg website. That is the grill/smoker I own. (I am in no way affiliated with the company but I stand behind the food that it cooks). It is an amazing grill. A bit pricey but you will never regret it. I don't remember the last time I made chili or anything for that matter in a slow cooker. I smoke pork butts, beef roasts, briskets all day/night in sub zero weather without thinking about it. I can hardly work my oven anymore I use it so infrequently. Natural lump charcoal is the way to go. Now get out that hat and jacket and start grilling .....

Spouse grills year round...nothing beats the smell of meat cooking over the fire! We also do stews and soups, comfort foods in winter is awesome - chili and cornbread, mmmm. It also seems like we try different restraunts more, a feeble reason to leave the warmth of the house but seems to keep us from developing cabin fever!

use the crock pot a lot for venison stew and the like. Also the electric frying pan. But we used both our charcoal and gas grill year around. Was just out grilling a steak yesterday having to brush almost a foot of snow off the grill. I use the gas grill for burgers, hot dogs, brats and the likes. But when it comes to a steak or turkey or something that requires more space or higher temps. I stick with the ole charcoal grill. when it get below 30 gas grills won't cook a steak the way I like it.

am smoking a pork butt as i type. another 4.5 hours and it will supposedly be done. marinated over night with a prepared mustard rub and then some dry ingredients on top of that. it will either taste good or be a somewhat expensive experiment gone wrong.

Same as others here....grill and smoke year round. I have stuck with Weber produts as they are some what inexpensive and very reliable. No Gas other than in the Colemen lantern....all fire at my house. The 18" Weber if set correctly will maintain 225-235F for 12-14 hours.....and the standard weber kettle can hit 600 easy for that perfect steak.

Cinnamon in chili isn't a mistake. It adds an interesting flavor, but not everyone cares for it.

half a cup of brown sugar to a pot of chili also does wonders. a mild sweet taste, not too powerful.
