    When is too late for a BBQ?

    Just thought, as I sat here, December rapidly closing in, munching on a properly barbequed burger and sausages, just when is it inappropriate to have a BBQ? I mean noone talks about it this time of year yet I can't see any downsides? If it's not raining, what's the problem - cold certainly isn't, who needs to be cold with flames about!
    Mmmm, nom nom!

    I deffo think it's inappropriate to have a BBQ much past about half 10.....

    You'll have consumed a lot of drink....things get rowdy....easy to get burnt!

    As for seasons, anytime is a good time for a BBQ!!!

    As it hacks-off the neighbours who have just got their brats to sleep, and are about to start having some "grown-up time"...

    We had our first BBQ on the 29th January this year ( i know this as it was my cousins birthday ). We are planning to have one when it snows just to get a picture of us sitting around the BBQ!

    We pretty much do them year round at my cousins and we have an open fire pit which was purchased for 15 when focus went bust!

    Can't moan about being cold then!

    nice! Glad I'm not alone in wanting them be an all year round thing Can't beat a barbie! Tbh we only did it as our oven is unplugged due to kitchen revamp. But it worked rather well!

    We also tend to use the BBQ as an oven, we have done all sorts from Roasted Joints to Dauphinoise potatoes to baked Alaska

    I just had smoked chilli burgers for dinner (courtesy of my mum - she's been a godsend recently). Done slowly on the BBQ for a few hours, was lovely.

    On Boxing Day in 2000, my brother and I BBQ'd outside in the snow (in Cornwall) in our BARE FEET!
    Because we're Kiwis... and Kiwis BBQ at Xmas!

    I want to have a big indoor BBQ when I find the money tree to buy a place and do it up to my standards, a big kitchen with a BBQ built in Oh and the compulsory Aga (Well I am a Yorkshire man and from a farming family!)
