Many families in the Superior, CO area that have custom outdoor kitchens enjoy barbecuing at all times of the year; whether it’s a beautiful summer day or there is a foot and a half of snow on the ground.
However, not all families are as keen on standing out in the freezing cold for some grilled steak or chicken. Those that don’t want to barbecue during the winter season have two options: keep the barbecue outside or store it inside. Both of these options come with their fair share of positive and negative aspects.
Storing Your Grill Inside For The Winter
In particularly snowy areas of Colorado, many families will store their gas grills inside. They will often bring them into their garage, shed or basement. Any of these locations can work, as long as the area is dry and is free of falling objects.
When storing a grill inside, the owner has to remember to remove the tank and store it outside. If the owner forgets to store it outside, the tank could potentially leak and cause a destructive explosion. Be sure to store the tank in a safe place away from any vents.
Storing a Grill Outside For the Winter
Storing a grill outside requires a lot less effort from the owner. The owner keep the tank connected to the barbecue; however, they have to remember to shut it off.
Finally, after the tank has been shut off, the owner has to simply place a protective cover over the barbecue. This will ensure that it stays in good condition, no matter how bad the Colorado weather gets.
Whether you are keeping it inside or outside, there are a handful of things that you must remember when storing your barbecue in the winter. By doing these things, you can be sure that the barbecue can grill up the perfect steaks, burgers and veggies this spring.
