There is no more enjoyable thing on Earth, to me, than slow-lighting my Weber Charcoal grill, cracking a beer, prepping meat/fish/whatever, messing with the charcoal, cracking a beer, adding some charcoal, and so on, and so on....

It's kine of a letdown when it's all done. I really love the process, the scent, the fire, trying new techniques and foods, and just stretching out the process as much as possible.

I'm not much for grilling, but I do like to BBQ low-and-slow on my old 1/4" steel offset. My cooking times are up to twelve hours, so I'm quite happy "when it's all done." I even cook for large gatherings, so I definitely get my BBQ fix.

most do not grill year round up here,,,so we do very much enjoy the warmer months when we do

I cook 5-6 nights a week on the grill

and I agree, I like the smell- of burgers and steaks and ribs
like the smell of fresh cut lawn , and watermelon,,,these are summertime aromas

More beer! Actually, I like the lingering smell of mesquite in the air and my clothing.

I grill on average twice a week during the warmer months. I really enjoy the act, I'm pretty good at it, the food is good, and it saves on my gas and electric bill.

I grill all the time but it's go go go!
I got too much to do than sit around and nurse a grill.
I recently got a Pit Barrel Cooker which is an awesome smoker for me.
Light it, hang my meat, and come back a few hours later when its done.
No muss, no fuss!

We like to grill...but no, we don't get depressed after cooking.

I consider Charcoal grilling an art form and grill year round here in eastern Pennsylvania.

I love love LOVE to grill with charcoal.

I have various kinds of charcoal that I use depending on the mood and need like regular and lump charcoal in various flavors such as mesquite and hickory.

I love smelling the charcoal heating up and LOVE the taste of meats and fish that have been grilled over charcoal.
Yes, I do get a little sad when it's done and over with but since I grill sometimes six days a week in the summer I am suddenly happy again.
