    Default Winter Time Grilling


    Does anyone use a Tuscan Grill in their fireplace? I think about
    having one every winter. This one seems better suited for outdoor
    cooking http://www.spitjack.com/page/SJ/PROD/FIREGRILL/SRGRILL
    but this one seems perfect for inside

    I just bundle up and go outside and use the grill!

    The second one does seem more appropriate for a fireplace. Inasmuch as
    we don't/won't have a fireplace, I guess I don't have to worry about
    it. :-)

    Years ago I knew someone who had a unit that looked a lot like the
    second one, but I never actually saw them use it and don't know how
    well they like it. It did look as though it had been well used.

    A jacket and lamp would be cheaper.

    I have both, and use em. Got my chair, side table, lamp (use a
    industrial type like you see at Home Depot) and a book.
    Side table is for the beverage of course.

    Plus, they don't have winters in SF!

    Low today was 48F. High was 48F. Low tomorrow is predicted at 51F,
    high 60F.

    I don't have one like that, but I do use grates in my wood stove. It is fun
    cooking over a fire on a cold winter day. Most of the time, it is grilling a
    steak, but I've also done a leg of lamb, spatchcocked chickens, etc. Oh,
    baked potatoes, of course, are superb.

    My local dive uses the first one to grill meats. The chef pulls coals out
    of the pizza oven onto a stone counter and this sits over them.
    The second one is like the one that can go on my Franklin stove. I don't
    have it. I have a stainless steel flip grill like a fish grill but square
    and with legs. I don't use it much now that I have the stove instead of the
    FP going.

    I don't know why it's called Tuscan unless they figure the word sells. Most
    are made in China I believe.

    My fireplace is a sealed gas unit.

    I use the grill outside anytime it's over 20 F and not too
    windy. DH installed a couple of lights that point right at
    it for grilling in the dark.

    It's winter enough for me. My bbq isn't in a convenient location and
    I'd rather use my fireplace.

    My gas grill is out on the patio, so I would have to shovel the sidewalk
    out there and the patio. It is not a sidewalk I would otherwise have to
    clean. Plus, it's dark out there at supper time. We have a grill pan
    that we were using instead of outdoor grilling. Now we have a Cuisinart
    indoor grill and it does a great job.

    Just stay on top of chimney cleaning, because grease added to creosote is a
    deadly combo.
