Don’t let the weather keep you from enjoying the great cooking you get on your Memphis Grill! Our grills are constructed to withstand the elements and, although it may be colder outside, a few simple adjustments are all you need to get the same great food:

  • Increase your warm-up time: When temperatures dip, simply give your grill some extra warm-up time before you start cooking. Fifteen to twenty minutes should do the trick.
  • Take advantage of Memphis Grills’ mobile app: Our Grilling & Smoking app allows you to adjust your grill’s temperature and track your food’s internal temperature without ever leaving the warmth of your home.
  • Keep ice and snow off your grill: Clearing the snow and ice off the grill is good practice. For the best protection from the elements, purchase a grill cover.
