We love barbecue parties! We have a decent-sized space on the side of our house which is perfect for such, and we brave chilly nights just to have one every now and then. No, we have never done it in the afternoons, maybe we will one of these days while the kids are enjoying their inflatable pool. It would damage our budget a lot if we’d have to install a beautiful outdoor fire pit just so we can keep warm during barbecue nights. But hey, if there was a two-in one equipment for that (heater and griller in one. LOL), then I would definitely look forward to buying that!
