A gas grill can be a great addition to your home if you love grilling, but hate the mess and smoke of charcoal. Gas grills are clean, easy to use, and provide consistent results. However, not everyone knows how to use one. If you are having trouble understanding the instructions that came with your gas grill, you have purchased a used one that came with no instructions, or you need to use an unfamiliar grill, this guide will help you. Safe use of a gas grill is key to having a great outdoor cooking experience.
First, make sure your grill is set up fifteen feet or more from any object, including cars, doors, buildings, and windows. That keeps fires and fumes from being a worry. Check out all connections and fittings to make sure that they are tight and that leakage is not a worry.
Maintaining your grill in excellent condition is vital to being able to use it safely. Look the grill over every time you are about to use it and make sure you replaced damaged parts. Tubing should be straight and unkinked and burners should not be clogged.
Open the hood and leave it open while you light your match, then turn on the gas and add the flame. Once the fire is lit, leave it alone! Do not poke the rocks or briquettes, since this could cause the formation of explosive gas pockets. Make sure pets and kids are away from the grill at all times. Make sure your grease catcher is in place, and that you have a secondary canister of fuel on hand in case you run out midway through, then get cooking.
Grilling on a gas grill is a lot like cooking over charcoal – the rocks or briquettes provide similar heat, and in grills with smoking pans, you can even use wood chips for that real smoked flavor.
You may need to preheat your grill with the cover down for a few minutes, but do not leave it that way long, as problems can occur. Once the grill is hot, you can begin cooking your meat, fresh grilled vegetables, or any other foods. Remember that it is a very good idea to have everything prepared before you need it, so you will not have any problems along the way.
A gas grill is an excellent choice for anyone who loves to grill. It is clean and neat, simple to use, and provides the same quality of food as messy, inconvenient charcoal. Now that you know how to use a gas grill, you will not have any problems with your cooking. Try your hand at gas grilling today and see how simple it can really be.
