Grill Preheating

Every grill needs preheating before you start the cooking process, it would be good for some time to start the cooking process right away immediately starting a gas grill. Though you on the gas grill, you will need the heat to transfer to the grates before beginning the grating process so that your food comes cooked well and attractive. Apart from the taste and texture, this heat helps in preventing the food to get sticking to the grates.

What to do?

Before starting the cooking process, make sure you have preheated the gas grill with the lid closed for at least 15 minutes so that you can get a healthy, yummy and delicious food.

Cooking with Dirty Grills

Most of them make use of the grills for the next day with the same texture cooked out last night or before; this is one of the common mistakes everyone does it. It’s important to wash your grills and then start the next day cooking process as it prevents the last day cooking items to get adhered to the present food item and also prevents your food from sticking to the grill grates.

What to do?

Clean your grill after the grill gets cooled a little bit after shutting off the gas grill, this will help in cleaning the leftover food that is sticked to the grate completely. You can make use of any grill brushes to clean or remove the stuck on food particles.

Not using dials for heat control.

You can turn the dial on high heat to one side and low heat on another side so that you can sear your food as preferred.

What to do?

Just turn on the dial on one burner to high and then leave the other dial off or in low heat so that you can maintain the heat control while cooking your food on the gas grill.

Lifting the lid continually while cooking food

Propane Run Out
