Poll: Do you barbecue in winter?

Hi everyone,

 

On the front page you'll notice that we have a new feature on Workshop - discussion polls. We will update the polls regularly and hope you enjoy participating. 

 

The early results from our first poll suggest Workshop members might be a little soft! Don't forget to add your vote and feel free to discuss the topic by replying below.

Re: Poll: Do you barbecue in winter?

yeah BBQ regularly in winter, the barbie is out the back door so not hard to slip out there. The only problem i have to deal with is there are often kangaroos standing next to it and we both get a fright when it is dark and i go out the back door.

It's not so much the cold that's the problem it's the dark. It can be hard to see if the food is cooked or not!

Absolutely, BBQ all year round. Especially big roasts.

Absolutely.  Ours gets a flogging all year round.  I think the only time we give it a rest is when we stick a roast or a beer can chook on the webber.  Nothing like a nice piece of dead animal on the ol' BBQ with a refreshing ale in hand.

Today, I cooked a feast of 5Kg of diced roo, & 2Kg of diced beef with herbs, on our gas fired outdoor wok, does that count?

Re: Poll: Do you barbecue in winter?

I find that I do grill more in winter, but still smoke where I can. On cold days, particularly wet and windy ones, it can be hard to hold a consistent temperature for long slow cooking. It its a good day though, lets get those coals going.
