My wife and I received our first Weber as a Wedding gift. Its been almost two years since then and I can honestly say that I use it at least three times a week during the winter and almost daily during the summer. This is easier said then done as we live in Wisconsin and experience some bitter cold Winters and hot humid summers. this past year we saw a High of one hundred and ten degrees with a low of negative 48. The picture shows me wearing a windproof expedition parka and ski goggles to keep my body from getting frost bitten while checking my families smoked brisket before a Packers game. No matter the weather, the amount of use, and abuse, the Weber has always held up!- the charcoal just works a little differently in the cold weather. . . .
