    Winter Grilling

    You may want to think twice before you put that grill away for the season. We all know what your asking... Can you use a propane grill in the winter? Yes, it is very unlikely for a grill to not work in the winter time! Depending on where you live, the elements can be extremely different. However, whether it is warm or cold, it still gets dark early in the winter. A tip to save time and daylight is to prep your food ahead of time so you can start grilling earlier! If you don't have that time, we suggest getting a flashlight or an overhead light to shine on the grill. 


    Before starting to grill, make sure there is no snow or debris around the area. Also, shovel a path to the grill to prevent any slips or trips! When grilling, make sure to lift the lid as little as possible. This is to prevent the heat from escaping and will increase your cooking time when grilling in cold weather. 


    We know winter grilling is not for everyone, so if you prefer to store your tank during colder months, learn more about how to properly store your propane tank in the winter.
