Barbecuing in Canada in the Winter

    That photo doesn’t truly represent barbecuing in Canada in winter! The sun is out and there is ground peeking through the snow. Global warming must have shown itself that day.

    You should have clarified that this photo was taken when it was about -5C instead of the typical -22C or with windchill – 43C as has been recorded here. I have seen you barbecuing here where you have had to first shovel to even get out the back door to reach the BBQ! This photo looks more like spring in Calgary!

    But I do appreciate how you risk your life in such weather conditions that Canada throws at us, all for the sake of a yummy BBQ meal. You are a provider honey! 🙂

    Oh my, I wouldn’t be BBQing during winter if I lived where you are :). In fact I don’t think I’d ever venture outside.

    I’m one of those who live in Austraila (Canberra mind you) who complain how cold it is. But I still prefer winter over 40C summer days.
