Lanse, I'm in southern Indiana, and I barbecue or grill year-round...one of the reasons I'm glad I have a garage. BUT...I've always been "dirt-poor," I guess, and I've never paid $250 for a grill...much less $500 or $1000.
I've got a 250-gallon round [as opposed to oval] fuel oil tank that hasn't been used in over 25 years, and I'm planning to cut and weld myself into a smoker I can carry on a trailer...as soon as I get some bucks to put into materials. My OTHER project on the grilling burner is a UDS: an upright drum smoker [or "ugly drum smoker," to some people]. I figure I can build a UDS for $100 or less, and that should keep me and the wife in smoked meat for a long time.
The fuel oil tank smoker will be for larger gatherings, like family reunions and such. I'll have a bit more money in it, but the tank comes with the stand made of angle iron, so I'm pretty sure I can just cut that down to a size that will work on a trailer.
BUT...the fact that I grill/smoke during the winter MIGHT just put me in the minority.
