My cooking in the cold story. Back in 1984 I was single and found a great Condo overlooking the ocean with very cheap rent since I knew the owner. The down side was the kitchen stove was electric and barely worked.
So I was alway using my mini weber outside even in the rain. I remember the very nice older Italian woman who lived in the other condo used to take pitty on me in really bad rain and invite me in for a home cooked italian dinner.
I got to a point where I would fix rice in cast Iron pots on the grill and even fix corn bread in the rain. Nothing beads hot bread, coffee, and a warm steak for breakfast
Ahh those were the days. Oh and no in the year I was living their I never got the stove replaced.
It was very fun for a first appartment.
