Our old Weber gas grill has been very good to us.
It’s that time of year again! The time to put away all of the gardening equipment, clean out the gutters, and bring in the lawn ornaments. Even the lawn mower is looking at having it’s spot replaced by the snow blower.
It’s early yet and the leaves haven’t even begun to change, but I’m already feeling reluctant to give up on something that we’ve enjoyed all summer long. Our Gas Grill!
No way is our Weber grill going to get tucked inside the shed and slumber all winter long.
I’ll stand out on the deck in a parka with my platter of food waiting to be put on. No matter how cold or windy it gets, our trusty gas grill is the one thing I can’t let go of.
Is it safe to use a gas grill in winter?
It is absolutely safe to use a gas grill in winter. Freezing temperatures don’t pose a danger to the grill or the propane tank. It is safe for you to store and use your grill outside even during the coldest winter months.
We shoveled a trail to our gas grill one Christmas so we could prepare our baby back ribs for dinner. With the trail through the snow still fresh a mere week later, we celebrated New Years Eve with steaks. Check out this beginners guide on how to grill the perfect steak tips.
I don’t know what it is about the grill that entices me this way. Maybe its some primitive notion that there’s something ritualistic in cooking your food over an open flame.
Maybe it’s Silke telling me that this grill is the only thing she trusts me to cook with. I prefer the former over the latter. No matter the reason she is just as game as I am to fire up our trusty old Weber gas grill, no matter the season or outdoor temperature.
Our Favorite Winter Recipe – Cabbage on the Weber Gas Grill
One of my favorite things that we make mostly in the winter is a cabbage concoction that I don’t think we have a name for. We quarter a cabbage, remove the step and then wrap the cabbage sections individually in tinfoil.
Add a table spoon of butter, pepper, seasoned salt, red pepper and garlic powder. If anyone had told me that I would dig on grilled cabbage a couple of years ago I would have said they were crazy!
Why our Weber gas grill has been with us now for over six years.
The grill is still going strong after all the years! The reason is because we are diligent about covering it with a plastic cover when the grill is not in use. Plus, we clean our gas grill every season with a stainless steel cleaner.
Our gas grill shows no signs of rust and all the buttons and dials still work perfectly. Even when its 10 degrees below outside all the gas elements fire right up!
Our Weber gas grill will remain on the deck all rear round, always covered, but never forgotten.
Do you have a problem parting with your outdoor cooking device? Don’t worry you’re in good company.
