KettlePizza - Oven inserts for Grills
Made in the USA
Your KettlePizza works as great in winter weather as it does during anytime of year.

Grilling our favorite foods in the great outdoors has become a year-round activity for millions of people around the world, no matter the weather. Spring. Summer. Fall. And winter. Grilling enthusiasts take on weather conditions — too hot, too windy, too wet or too cold — with the preparedness and gusto of our ancestors.

Unlike our ancestors, however, cooking outdoors may have been a matter or survival vs. what it is for most of us — a lifestyle and palette decision.  With that said, the notion of not being able to grill outdoors of any given day can be a downer, especially following a long, hard day at work when all you can think about is getting home, firing up your trusty Made in the USA KettlePizza, maybe cracking open an adult beverage and celebrating life under the stars with your favorite food (pizza!).

Of course, grilling outdoors when the days are short and the night air biting cold requires some thoughtful techniques:

It’s only the second day of Winter 2014/-15, and that means we have several months of winter grilling fun ahead of us.  Keep it safe. And play it smart. But don’t let a little nasty weather kill your appetite for hot slices off of a wood fired KettlePizza.
