Most of the people who I know that host regular barbecues choose to do so in the spring or summer season.
- At least, depending on your climate, when temperatures are mild to warm outdoors.
My father hosted backyard cookouts for the neighborhood at least once a month during the summer when all of us kids were out of school and on break. It was a momentous occasion because the other adults on the block would combine their efforts to produce a massive feast of delicious food while all of the kids would gather and play large football, soccer, baseball, kickball, basketball, and street hockey games. Those are some of my happiest and fondest memories from my childhood. That’s why I’m eager to repeat some of those memories with my own family now that I’m my father’s age. However, I have learned how to enjoy cookouts even in the autumn when temperatures start to drop below 50 degrees fahrenheit. Aside from planning the meals around large bonfires, I recently purchased four of those large propane space heaters that restaurants use in their outdoor seating areas during cold weather. If you sit inside a circle of them, the heat produced is extremely comfortable and almost makes you forget you’re outside for a split second. However, once you step outside the circle, you might get hit with a gust of cold wind, reminding you within an instant that you’re in freezing temperatures. Since my cookouts are usually isolated to my family and extended family, it’s typically easy enough to put one space heater at each corner of my wooden deck in my backyard. That way the whole deck is heated by radiant heaters from all directions.
