Default Could someone please explain this?

Why would people be so neat and clean with sanitation and then go and brew outdoors with a turkey fryer? Am I missing something here? If the name of the game is clean and sanitize why would I ever think of brewing outdoors???

Everything pre-boil and mid-boil is sanitary. Only post boil is questionable.

Because the boil will sanitize anything in the wort.

As long as nothing falls in the pot post boil you should have no problems brewing outdoors.
Just my .02

It's only post boil that it matters. Indoors/Outdoors, there's bugs everywhere. You wont get'em all but sanitizing all the gear after the boil will get enough.

Have a serious boil over on your kitchen stove and you will know why people use turkey fryers outside!

Sanitation is important on the cold side of the process, ie after you start chilling the wort. During the boil, the heat keeps everything sanitized.

You obviously don't want stuff falling into your brew kettle, but sanitation isn't an issue until after the boil is complete.

For me the switch to outdoors was due to full boils, larger batches, and not smelling up the house with hop smells. (it did not bother me, but the wife and kids did not like the smell)

Because my backyard is cleaner than my kitchen.

The inside of your house likely has as many or more bacteria and wild yeast as your back yard does!

Same here! I don't know why SWMBO doesn't like it. I think it's the best smell in the world!

High pressure propane is also not very popular indoors. As has been said, most homes have more dust and germs than the outdoors.
