A Quick-Start Guide to Grilling with Gas

Gas grilling has the distinct luxury of lighting and preheating effortlessly.

Make sure your grill is clean.

Whether your grill is hand-me-down or fresh out of the box, make sure that it’s clean and ready to go before lighting it up. Clean your grill at least once a year or twice for the best performance. Don’t forget to make sure the fuel source is off and start with removing and scrubbing the grates. Clean the grill components under the grates, paying attention to burner tubes, and wipe out the interior of the lid before wiping down the exterior. Check your owner’s manual for specific cleaning instructions. 

Check your gas tank.

Once your grill is clean, you’ll need to attach a fuel tank. Propane is the most common fuel type for gas grills.

Light your grill.

Once the propane is connected and the tank valve is open, it’s time to light the grill. Make sure that the grill lid is open. Turn one burner to high or “light” and then press the ignite or auto-light button on the grill. Once the first burner is lit you can easily light the other two or three burners and adjust their heat.

Browning and Searing

The golden-brown color and dark sear marks you get from the grilling process are what gives meat its delicious flavor. To achieve a great shade of brown and a fantastic sear, try these tips. The drier the meat, the easier it will be to brown it. Flip cuts of meat frequently to avoid burning either side. Avoid packing food too tightly onto the grill. You want to make some space for the steam and heat to rise around the edges for an even cook.

What To Cook?
