I know, at this temperature and humidity, it is not very conducive to grill or even light the fireplace outdoors. I do not also have those kind of fancy outdoor fireplaces to enjoy a quiet evening with the family. We do have a small grill to serve as a grill and a mock fireplace if we need to. I think that will suffice for now because it is summer. We can probably consider having those mini fireplace you can put outdoors or in the house when the climate changes.
I told my husband that if we ever go back in the Philippines for our retirement, I do want an outdoor fireplace to complement my grilling area. My husband loves hosting parties and having one will be great.
