Default Don't tell me it's too cold to BBQ

It was clear and crisp this morning in Minnesota. But, when the family want ABT's, ya gotta do what ya gotta do.

Mission accomplished

Great job with photoshop, That snow looks almost real.

All kidding aside, you got a White Christmas? Wow. Great shots out there with you braving the cold to provide for the family. Looks mighty good.

Looks purely tropical to me...-29 F. this wind. I'm just guessin'
that the prime rib will have to be done in the oven, as it might be kinda tough to get the BKSD up to temperature.:)
