Be sure to keep your extremities warm and using a good, dry boots and a pair of gloves or mittens (those that leave your toes exposed them ideal for grilling).
- Note that in cold weather the gas griddle does not work as well as when it is hot outside. The cold will mean that the outdoor griddle will not heat up as fast or kept hot, and cold decreases the pressure in the gas tank so it will not work as well as before. The answer is that you should make sure the tank is full before starting.
- Keep the lid closed. The heat of the griddle will escape faster in cold temperatures and food takes longer to cook. Keep the lid to help the outdoor griddle is hot, and once it is hot, closed cooking food to higher what you would do during the summer temperature.
