    Nice one. Somehow your posts make me think of a regional map of California with “grill zones” demarcated. I think your house must be in the “fry-an-egg-on-the-sidewalk” zone.

    I’d like to weigh in as one who has observed the talented Biggles, up close and personal, tending the smoker. Nah, even better, I’ve sampled his incredible grill-yums. Up close and personal.
    Yeah, he’s all that.
    Follow his wise teachings.

    I spent the summer of ’83 with my aunt and uncle out in Citrus Heights and my uncle grilled almost every evening, often before the evening breeze kicked in. I have no idea how he did it and even though I now have a space where I could set up a small grill, there’s no way that I’d want to go outside and tend it on a day like today.

    Here in Tucson, the highs have been around 105 F for over a week, but I still find the best way to cook meat is on the grill – it’s just not for the faint of heart! I fire up my grill at least twice a week. The last time I needed propane, it was in the middle of a monsoon storm. I opted to trade in my tank versus not grilling that night (you can’t fill a tank when there’s lightening out). I grilled salmon last night and it was still 100+ F outside at 8:00 PM.

    Do all your prep indoors in the AC, make sure you have some snacks and a cold beverage on hand to tide you over, and then wait ‘til the sun goes down to do your grilling. Now that I think about it, maybe it’s actually easier here, because when it’s this hot you really don’t notice the heat of the grill!

    PS: Honor your meats – use the grill!
