It’s Never Too Cold for Gas Grills

While it may be literally true for the lucky ducks living in Florida, Southern California and other perennially warm climes, our stance is that it’s never too cold to use gas grills anywhere – ever.

But, how could that be? Mind, we aren’t talking about electric grills. Everybody knows those indoor tricks. We’re talking about using gas grills outside, in the frosty weather of winter.

Tactic #1: Bundle up.

For some die-hard grillers, particularly up here in the Pacific Northwest, it’s really not too much of a stretch to grill in January if you pick the right day … and don’t live right on the coast. For the rest, though, warm clothing is a must.

The only real trick is in the gloves. Don’t wear mittens. Fingerless gloves are good, but they could defeat the purpose in colder weather. The best way to go is with heated gloves (yes, they exist) or an ultrathin glove liner that keeps in the warmth without a loss in dexterity – so you can still handle your tongs.

Tactic #2: Block the wind.

This is all about grill position and it’ll be worth tugging it around the corner of the house if the wind kicks up. This is where gas grills with some measure of portability come in handy.

Tactic #3: Grill with the lid down.

This should go without saying, especially if there’s snow in the air, but some people really, really like to stare at their food while it grills; it’s a security blanket of sorts for many grillers who lack skill and confidence … or a temperature gauge.

So, the real lesson here is to use a gas grill with a temperature gauge (and know your food cooking temps!) while “adventure grilling” in adverse weather conditions.

Tactic #4: Choose grill-friendly foods.

What are grill-friendly foods? Depending on your skill level, they’re foods that are easy for you to grill that don’t require a lot of prodding and flipping to get just right.

If you’re an old hand at using gas grills, this could range anywhere from cheeseburgers to prime steak, but if you’re new at adventure grilling you may want to stick with hot dogs until you get the hang of it.

Take adventure grilling to the next level with this portable gas grill from Napoleon Products, which features a folding scissor cart, temperature gauge and windproof lid. 

If you don't want to fully commit to grilling in bad weather, this independently operated side burner from Minden Grill is just the ticket for a quick sizzle.
