All depends on weather. If its nice out I will easily make myself lunch and dinner on the grill when my job lets me. But once the nice weather hits I want nothin but food from the grill. Q is my absolute favorite style /type of food could eat it all day everyday. Hell if I wouldn't get sick I would eat the lump charcoal lol

Random, seems like I've been Qing three to four times a week. With the warm weather coming, nothing beats drinking some beers and Qing.

At about 3 Am my mind starts to wander. What kind of concoction can I muster up today? Then I obsess for several hours over that. Then during the morning hour I have a certain clarity. Then, I know, what's cookin, fo dinna

Unless we have really rough weather I'll fire up the wsm every weekend following my bi-weekly payday. Wifey already knows its coming. As far as grilling something on one of the redheads, its usually if we have excellent weeknight weather and I get off work early.

It's a time thing for me too - if I have the time to fire up the Egg and cook something then I do. Dinner around here is typically leftovers from my weekend cooks or sandwiches. Getting to the point in my life where I can't eat dinner too late...

I always try and fire up the grill I ask the family what they want for dinner and then try and figure out how much of what they want can be grilled or smoked

I am in the random group too, but I do try to grill something on the weekend, usually enough for 3-4 lunches/dinners during the week.

Grilling on a weeknight is easy enough with just a little planning. Thaw out what you want in the fridge overnight right after you finish dinner the night before. Marinate/brine as necessary, usually when leaving for work. When you get home, start the grill, and season whatever you are cooking as appropriate and prep side dishes. Grill should be ready to go, then cook on grill, allow for rest time and finish sides, etc.

Whenever the mood strikes me. Whenever I am off, I'll smoke something typically. If I work that day if I get int he mood to use the grill, I will. Doesn't matter what kind of weather we are having.

All depends on the weather, like whether or not I can get to my grill. The pellet pooper is in the garage, but the rest of my stuff is in the shed. Yes, there is snow between the house and the shed and I ain't trudging out to it just yet. I think I have half a bag of Dragon's Breath Lump out there too that needs a good burning.

Otherwise it's 2-3 nights a week, it only takes 15-20 min for the coals to be ready. In my book that short wait is worth it.
