I guess I coulda answered your question. This year my plan is to clean my UDS really well and repaint it. I built it early in the winter and just got a light coat of paint on it. Still need to put on some side tables or build a cart with table for it.

The only difference between winter and summer cooking is the amount of clothes you have on.

Winter doesn't stop me from firing up the smokers and the Weber kettle but it does impact the sitting in a lawn chair, drinking a cold beer...well at least the sitting in a lawn chair part.

I am looking forward to loading up some cookers and doing some camping out at the lakes this spring/summer.

I cook year around outside. Wind, rain, snow doesn't matter to me. If its really nasty out I just slide the cooker closer to my patio door. I have three foot overhangs on my roof keeps most of the rain and snow away and I keep an eye on things from inside.

I dunno. I was visiting family in Pleasanton a few years back and it was over 115* on my brothers back patio. I wasn't about to fire up the grill in that heat. The beer was good though.

I cook outside all year long, but tend to do it less in the winter, especially when the temperature gets below 40F.
It's definitely more enjoyable when it's 80F and sunny out.

I never really stop Q'ing just put more clothes on :) But it sure is nice now that there is light out and the 30F is dang near Tshirt weather. If only this snow would melt faster so I can use my deck again.
