I had a Weber Kettle charcoal BBQ. Beer can chicken was a favourite. We only used it seasonally as I don't stand outside in -30 weather to BBQ anything. I came home one day to find a pile of charcoal behind the wife's studio. Couldn't figure it out for a few days until we noticed that the BBQ was missing. The thieves dumped it behind the studio so they wouldn't get dirty charcoal in the back of their truck, I guess. We started going to visit they neighbours beside us when they BBQ. Simplest and cheapest option.
