Deck Barbeque in the Winter? Relish the Warmth in Southern California

Winter is grilling time in San Diego!

Winter is grilling time in San Diego!

For all of us here in San Diego and Orange County, let’s take a moment to respect all the folks around the country suffering through the bitter cold of a truly terrible winter. Please try to restrain yourselves from pointing out that you are currently wearing a t-shirt and shorts with the window open, have to put on the air conditioning in your car and don’t know which attic box contains your only bulky sweater.

Okay, now that that’s over with, let’s celebrate another beautiful and mild Southern Calfornia winter. The temperatures have been hovering in the 60s, 70s and 80s throughout the season (with only minor cold dips), making us some of the luckiest people in the world. We pay a lot in cost of living and real estate for our slice of heaven, so let’s make it worth the cost.

I’d like to suggest a winter barbeque to celebrate our wonderful Southern California weather. If you have a barbeque on your deck or patio, give it a good scrub, put in a full propane tank and invite some friends, family or neighbors over for steak, hot dogs, chicken or juicy brats.

It may seem weird to tie on your “Kiss the Cook” apron in the middle of February when the rest of the country is struggling through ice storms, snow drifts and huge heating bills, but in my opinion that’s all the more reason we should be taking advantage of what we have.

Here at Best-Rate Repair, I love building decks and patios in San Diego for my clients, precisely because they encourage homeowners to go outside and enjoy the sunshine. Decks and patios make a perfect gathering place of a barbeque, outdoor dinner or even drinks with friends. Just because the holidays are over doesn’t mean you have to lose touch with everyone until the summer barbeque season starts. Put together a winter deck barbeque, and enjoy all that the San Diego and Orange County weather has to give. Just think twice about posting pics on Facebook if you have a lot of friends in the rest of the country!

If you’d like to have a deck barbeque but don’t have a deck, give us a call at Best-Rate Repair at (619) 229-0116, and we’d be happy to provide you with a quote.
