winter grilling brings cold comfort to some
Most everyone who heads out into a blustery Minnesota winter night to fire up the grill is seeking flavors that can’t be duplicated indoors…
But a big reason that winter grilling is on the rise is almost certainly the increasing popularity of the Big Green Egg, whose kiln-like structure keeps the heat sealed in and the chill wind out. Chuck Bulson, manager of the Warners’ Stellian store in Edina, said sales of the Eggs and their specially made charcoal have climbed steadily in recent winters.
“I’m surprised that we sell anything in the winter, but people with the Eggs really want to grill in winter,” he said.
