Put away the barbecue just because it’s a little cold out? Stop grilling just because it’s snowing? Canadians who love their outdoor cooking don’t stop just because the weather turns less than ideal.
A couple of practical suggestions: keep the lid closed as much as possible, extend cooking times a bit, and never set up a grill in your garage—the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning isn’t worth it. And it probably goes without saying that a dangly scarf isn’t the best accessory while you’re cooking, no matter what the environment is. There is, however, some winter-friendly gear that will make grilling in cold-weather a little easier for you diehard barbecue buffs.
