How to Use a Gas Grill
Gas grills are a very good option for outdoor cooking. An activity that can be very relaxing, fun, and delicious. 5-Minute Crafts will show you how to light up and shut down your propane grill correctly and safely, so you can enjoy your BBQ without having to worry.
How to light up a gas grill
Lift the lid. Don’t light up the grill with the lid closed or it will build up gas, which can be dangerous.
Open the gas valve by twisting it to the left side until it no longer turns.
Turn one burner all the way to a high temperature and push the ignition button if your grill has one.
If it doesn’t have an ignition button, use a long fireplace match to ignite the initial burner.
Once the burner is lit, you can turn the remaining burners up.
Close the lid. Now the grill needs to preheat to about 500ºF — 550ºF. This will take around 15 to 20 minutes.
Once it reaches the desired temperature, you can start grilling by laying the food on the grill. Make sure to leave at least an inch between each piece. Also, don’t forget to flip them so they cook on both sides.
How to shut down a gas grill
Shut off all the burners. Make sure you shut all of them down so there’s no gas flowing.
Turn off the gas valve.
Wait for the grill to cool down completely.
Close the lid. Use a grill cover to protect it.
