Default very off topic question

Why do I have much more trouble lighting a propane barbeque grill if
the weather gets colder (70-75 degrees) than the usual summer 80-90
degrees? Thanks to anyone who gives a serious answer to this.

Air becomes more dense when cold and the humidity may also increase. Dense
air means more oxygen per unit, but it becomes heavier meaning the venturri
effect which means the gas running past the air-intake hole just below the
burner-ring will not suck as much air in until the burner gets hot enough to
preheat the air lowering its mass.,..also the higher humidity may slow
ignition initially.

The gas itself would be generally uneffected by temp as it is under
pressure, regulated from the bottle feed.

Just my theory,..Jason
