So let's have an introduction about a gas grill.
A Gas Grill:
A gas grill is a famous tool for outdoor grilling activity for its easy access. This kind of grilling machine is run by gas. Many grillers have recommended using the gas grill instead of a charcoal grill.
Anyone can use it easily, even being a beginner. The only solution for a beginner is to read the manual given with the grill machine carefully. There is another portion that presented with the grill machine is the safety precaution portion.
Requirements needed before Using Gas Grill:
Some staffs are necessary before using gas grill such as:
- Gas grill
- Leakage detector tools and tactics
- Propane tank
How to Use a Gas Grill for the First Time
For a beginner, to make things easier, we can divide the entire process into four segments. They are given below:
Segment 01: Positioning the Grill
To set up the grill, one must set its position correctly and safely. The grill should be set at the level of the ground. Also, the placement should be 10 to 15 feet away from the house or living place so that the living place may remain safe.
Another important fact is that you can purchase propane grill rocks and place them under the grill. But before that, you should read the manual thoroughly to find out if there any restriction is available regarding this or not. If not, then find out the information about the placement of lava rocks.
There would a question you may think like 'why should I put lava rocks?' The answer is that the lava rocks help to distribute the heat of the grill evenly. It is used instead of charcoal. But for a gas grill, there is no necessity to use any of charcoal or wood because it can be heated automatically with the help of its gas or fuel supply as well as the use of lava rocks. The lava rock will also help to keep grill warm after fuel supply is off for a certain moment.
Segment 02: Propane Tank Set
In the following process, connecting a propane grill is the next step. You should check the gas line to avoid any kind of leakage or damages. If you are careless or unaware of this, there will be serious damage or explosion. So, fixing the gas line and checking as well as re-checking is necessary. Later on, you should have a look at the control valve to fasten it tightly.
You may have a query regarding the purpose of propane tank, such as where to place it or how to set this. To do that, positioning of the tank should be on a stand where the valve is in the direction of the grill combination. When you need to connect the valve, please reread the instruction thoroughly about this section because there might be variance in the type of connection.
For instance, in many grill machines, there is a screw valve system where you can easily attach or detach the screw nut.
Segment 03: Detect the leakage
After setting the propane tank, the next job is to detect the leakage. The visual examination might be safer in some cases, but if you use leakage detection, it would be the safest option.
You may find the tools in your nearer shop. You can also manage the solution in your home. For example, you can take some liquid soap and lukewarm water to mix it. Apply this mixture on the valve and then twist it for opening.
While opening the control valve, you have to notice that there are any bubbles formed or not. If there are no bubbles formed, the valve is safe, meaning that there is no leakage. If not, even there is the tiniest sign of bubbles on the valve, you should not leave it instead of fix this. Otherwise, there will be an explosion at any time while grilling, you never predict.
Segment 04: Valve Opening & grill Light up
After examining the leakage and confirming that there is no leakage at all, you should light up the grill. Firstly, you should keep the top valve of the grill free and then you will open its lid.
Later on, the gas flow should be turned on and set it at full to light up the grill through twisting the lighter. Sometimes, you might not have any lighter on your grill due to different versions. In that case, you may buy an extra grill lighter which must be standard enough for your grill.
After buying or managing the lighter, the grill is ready to run. When you ignite the grill, you can use the whole unit all along. If you find any discrepancies or mismatch that your gas is failed to ignite, first you should switch off the knob. Leave that for a while, start the procedures again.
