Flowers are opening early, birds are heading north too soon and our outdoor cooking urges are starting to stir at least two months ahead of schedule.
Only one thing for it: embrace global warming and purchase the latest in barbecue technology to assuage those man-make-fire needs.

Just the thing for the wandering barbecuer, we say. Bagsie not carrying the charcoal.
