One summertime activity that folks across Massachusetts and New England enjoy is throwing some meat down on the outside grill. I wouldn't fancy myself as a grill master by any means but I do enjoy going out on my deck and grilling up a nice dinner for my mother and/or in-laws when they come over to visit. There's no doubt that it's a favorite pastime for Massachusetts and Berkshire County residents alike.

I own a Weber Original Kettle charcoal grill and since I'm not outside to grill every day of the week it meets my needs. I suppose if I was grilling more often I would opt to go for a bigger gas grill but for now, my grill checks the box. Since I'm using charcoal, I opt to get the heat with a chimney. I know it takes more prep time in the grilling process, but I do enjoy the non lighter fluid taste. Again, if I was grilling more often, I would probably revamp the way I approach outside grilling.
