Would you or have you cooked outdoors year round?
We don't because we don't eat enough meat to make grilling all that necessary and I never have to feed so many people that I have to stir the gumbo with a boat oar.
ETA: I just saw the other thread. We use the gas grill in the winter and not the charcoal grill. As for smoking meat, we don't do that personally, but a friend, that happens to be both a neighbor and a co-worker has a smoker and does that throughout the year, as they are hunters. I think outdoor cooking throughout the year, even in cold temps is not really that big a deal. Like I said, though... I like the cold.
I want a smoker but have yet to decide on the model. when I do finally get one, we will use that year round also.
We don't have a smoker, but lots of friends do and I think they prefer to do it during the winter when it's not so hot.
We use the grill at least once or twice a week year round. We're going to be grilling burgers tonight and we have at least 6 inches of snow on the ground and should be getting another 3 tonight.
That said, there are times when we use the George Forman grill indoors when it's REALLY cold, windy, or snowy. It's been below zero and windy this week, so I've opted to cook our meat inside.

ive scraped snow off the grill in germany, and our last thanksgiving there we did it at a friends place with no patio and he was frying a turkey in freezing rain, poor guy

Oh, and I'm in Georgia. I'm scared of places like Indiana and Ohio and New Jersey anyway, so I probably wouldn't there. But, that's just because I wouldn't go outside if I didn't have to.
