There are many advantages of propane gas grills when compared to other options. The most important among them is that these grills are convenient to use and simple to learn. Also, there are other advantages like even cooking heat and little wait time to preheat. This article will tell you how to set up and use your propane gas grill.
The first thing you have to do is to prepare your propane gas grill. Set your grill securely on a level surface about 10 to 15 feet from any dwelling or structure. The lava rocks have to be arranged in the bottom of the grill according to the grill manufacturer’s instructions. After that, place the cooking grill over the rocks.
The next step is to arrange the propane tank. Before you do anything with your propane tank, you have to inspect the gas line for any signs of wear or cracks. If you find any problem, avoid using the grill. You have to make sure that the control valve is tightly closed. Then, you have to place the tank on the tank platform of the grill with the valve opening facing the grill connection. Valve connections are of several types. Refer to the manufacturer’s instructions to determine the type. Screw type valve connections are used commonly and the process is as simple as attaching the line to the valve with a screw nut.
The next step is to check the connection. Use a store-bought soap solution or mix a soap solution of water and dish soap to the connection of the valve and open the control valve. If you find bubbles in the soap solution on the valve, avoid operating the grill and close the valve. You can make sure that the connection does not have a leak if you do not find any bubbles. Such grills can be used safely.
The final step is to light the grill. The propane control valve has to be open. You should also open the grill lid. The gas flow control on the grill has to be turned on to full and immediately press the light switch. For those grills that do not have a light switch, you can purchase manual grill lighters can from a local hardware store. Now the gas will be ignited and you can use your grill. Turn off the gas control knob and wait if the gas does not ignite immediately. You can try again after some time.
The propane control knob has to be turned off first after use and then turn the gas flow control on the grill off. After two or three uses, you will learn the technique to use your propane gas grill. As it is very simple to use, you can become a professional griller in a very short span of time. The only thing you have to make sure is that of your safety. Make sure that the propane gas grill you use does not have any leaks or holes and that the gas does not leak.
