This year my family got our first bbq. And we used it well over the summer. Now its starting to get colder, but the propane tank we are using is still half full(guess). Is there any danger of the propane tank being in negative celcius temperatures either outside or in the garage in normal Canadian winter weather?

Nah, not at all man, we used propane tanks when I used to cook up in the French Alps, -30 degrees and nothing changes, as long as the container is as cold as the gas inside then its fine, its dangerous when one is hot and the other is cold.

Thats a relief. So it is also safe to use if one day in minus 24C i decide to make a hotdog?

Yeh, it will be fine, we used to have terrace BBQs when it was snowing and we were hammered.

Not exactly, I was a Snowboard guide by day and a chalet chef by night. Got to go and ride all day and get paid for it, then got paid to cook dinner for eight people so got my dinner for free as well, rent was so cheap, I left that mountain after 6 months with 10k euros and having had the best time ever!!

3 courses and canapes, really nice food like pan seared duck with elderberry jus, fondant potatoes and roast winter veg, apple tart tatins, onion soups, just nice, hearty food. You can see the view on my profile pic, that was at the top of the ski lift that was practically outside my chalet, it was a good time, loads of drink, women and snowboarding! Do it.

Before I did it for the first time I was depressed, stuck in the UK, bad relationships, not a lot of friends and broke, going up the mountains changed my life, put so much in perspective. I am going to Hokkaido, Japan in two weeks to do a few months up there for a family I met on one of my other seasons, they are having me as there live in chef and snowboard guide for their friends, excellent contact to have made!!

We shovel a path to our grill on our patio in the winter so I'd say you're in the clear.

OHHH MANNNNN. haha, Globe trotting. Do you expect there to be any language barrier issues? I would personally be worried about not being able to talk my way through a foreign land. I understand English is very prevalent but you never know.

And if you happen to see a person shooting giant laser beams from their hands... please tell me.
