I've been known to do the same thing with my open pit. Build a fire Friday after work and continually feed the wood to it all weekend just in case I decide to cook.
It is amazing how many "new friends" you can make when the folks in the neighborhood backtrack the smoke. It seems that more often than not, every time the UDS gets fired up, We have a lot more families taking walks in the neighborhood, (at least into our cul-de-sac). I think that it would be a fair statement to say "that I am promoting not only BBQ, put family time and exercise as well". Who knows, maybe a block party in the future.
