The BBQ grill is buried under wet, heavy snow, but that doesn't stop us from enjoying mid-winter grilling indoors where it's nice and warm. ;)

I came in from snow blowing to find that Melissa had seasoned some "country style" pork ribs and we grilled them on the Glenwood. Along with a couple of potatoes that she had wrapped in aluminum foil and baked in the oven an hour, and some boiled carrots.

I know I've shown stovetop grilling in this thread before, but this works so well, I thought I'd share it again.

We just lift off one of the round covers over the firebox, cover the hole with a small wire cooling rack "grill", and cover the grill with a large frying pan so that the open stove top is not sucking room air in over the firebed and stalling the draft. The pan also acts like a range hood. It insures that the stove's draft pulls the smoke from the grease dripping into the fire and sends it to the chimney, ..... not the smoke alarm. :D

Enjoy!

SB, you need one of those glass lids to cover that with instead of the kettle.... then you can set-up a camcorder so we can all watch it grill while we all keep warm. :)

Wow. So you can use the upper air for grilling or take off the lids. Ivhavent got the nerve for the broiler door yet but working flat looks safe enough. Maybe Ill try today as we have a blizzard and my daughter will be arriving home for spring break. Amazing.

Yes. But you have to use some type of a cover over the grill, or else all that inrush of room air will not only make the food cook slower and unevenly, it will stall the fire with too much over-fire air.

I use a large frying pan- enough to cover for grilling on one round cover hole, but as you can see with Archangel's pix, a half-sheet sized baking pan works to grill on both round cover holes over the firebox. ;)
