When I was a ute (youth) in the late 60's early 70's in suburban Boston, I recall that there were a lot of ruins of brick or stone outdoor grills. I can not recall anyone using any of these as they were relics of a past generation. I never saw a new one being built until the 21st century.
Could these that have been built at a frenzied pace also become abandoned relics? I'm trying to figure out why they were abandoned the first time around and whether this is a current fad or that we have actually experienced a lifestyle change. Any thoughts?
