It seems to affect my grill quite a bit, not sure why.

50 degrees ambient temp shouldn't make a big difference.

the weather will never stop me from grilling. i'm happy to shovel a path to the grill in the middle of the winter, i do it all the time.

as far as cooking times and heat go, for me it's not too much of an issue. just don't open the grill as much as you normally would to just look at the meat.

I prefer the charcoal or gas grill over it. For camping its nice and the clean up is easy. I bought an adapter hose for my 20# tank so I can fill the small tanks. Make life easier when camping.

Was heading out to put a slab of ribs on the grill Sunday (at least 3.5 hours, low and slow with Cherry and Hickory wood in the smoker box) but it had been so cold the night before the propane would not flow.

So I loaded up the smoker with Hardwood charcoal instead and smoked them for the next 5 hours. Had to finish off in the oven for a half hour since it was getting late. Great smoke flavor and came off the bone nice, but could have been on the smoker for a couple of more hours.

They had been marinating with my home made dry rub since the morning before so they had no choice but to be good.


BTW, Kodiak, having ribs on a grill for 1 hour is nobodies idea of slow cooking. Hell, when I make omelettes it takes an hour to sweat down the onions.

A quick tip when grilling in the winter;

When you go to turn the propane tank on, don't just reach down and twist the shit out of it. You'll notice if you do this that you'll get a bic lighter sized flame out of the burner.

Instead, turn it sloooowly counterclockwise about 1/4 turn then wait 5-10 seconds. Repeat until it's fully opened.

I don't remember all the technical shit about it, but there is a safety valve in the lines to regulate the flow of propane incase of a break in the line or what not. When it's cold as shit outside and you open the tank quickly, that valve doesn't properly open, so it does its job regulating the flow of the propane, hence the tiny flame.

Good tip, I will try this next time I have the issue. Makes sense.

mmmm, still have 3 slabs of ribs in the freezer, may have to put this to the test soon.

New Years Day we smoked a pork shoulder (6 hours) while having some brews and watching some football.

Thanks, that may be my issue as I do crank it open quickly.

Usually in the summer the grill will get well over 750 at highest setting, but only about 500 in the winter at the highest setting.
