True enough, and likewise true for any sort of cooking.  Yet somehow
even when grilling over charcoal in the back yard on a cold day it
doesn't feel so much as though the ambient is opposed to the results
you're trying to achieve.  Then again, I almost never try to cook out
of doors in January...

This is like making a car shorter by cutting off a few inches
from each end with a Sawzall.  Of course there's little benefit,
because that's a dumb way to do it.  -- Neil R. Ormos
