You know that liquid propane evaporation creates the pressure and vapour necessary to supply your grill with fuel. What you may not know is that once the temperature plunges below -45°F (-43°C), propane doesn’t vaporize at all. The closer you get to this temperature, the less propane will boil and evaporate.
On extremely cold days, you may notice hindered performance. Your grill will light, but the flame will lose intensity. There is nothing wrong with your grill, but unfortunately, there isn’t much you can do other than wait for the weather to warm up.
Alternatively, you can keep your gas grill covered on these days and take the opportunity to fire up your Broil King Keg. Its insulated double-walled steel body is 2.5 times more thermally efficient, making it virtually immune to cold weather!
Your Broil King pellet grill is also a great option. It will take longer to heat up in the extreme cold and will burn more pellets, but combustion won’t be affected. You also have the added bonus of using the iQue App on your smartphone to monitor and adjust temperatures for fewer trips outside.
If you’re fortunate enough to have your grill connected to your natural gas line, the cold should not impede performance.
