SJxx? Exposed to the sun or weathering? I sure hope not. It don't last too long.

Among other NEC permitted uses for flexible cords is "appliances where the fastening means and mechanical connections are specifically designed to permit ready removal for maintenance and repair..."
I think the best answer, if the device is listed, is by Calvin Henry-Cotnam that the cord is part of a factory assembly.

No. 12-gauge is required for 20-amp over-current protection.
You must properly size the wire (gauge) to correspond with the circuit protection rating - or vice versa.

wire requirements is so low you shouldn't be doing any wiring.
Sure you can use 16 gauge wire. The size of the wire has nothing to do with burning up your grill. You could even use 22 gauge wire, but the wire might burn up (and burned down your house). Nothing you do will make the grill burn up. The point is that you shouldn't be using 16 gauge wire for any house wiring.
Wiring requirements are dependent on state and local codes, not what some manual states is the minimum requirement for the appliance to work. The fact that you don't know that means that you need a lot more knowledge before you wire anything.
