Gas Grilling Tips

  • Do not use a propane gas cylinder if it shows signs of external damage, such as dents, gouges, bulges, fire damage, corrosion, leakage or excessive rust.
  • Before grilling, make sure the propane cylinder is secured to the grill as directed by the manufacturer.
  • After grilling, the cylinder must not be stored indoors or within any enclosed space.
  • Always open the grill hood before lighting, and light according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Never use gasoline or kerosene to start the fire.
  • Always grill in a well-ventilated area. Do not grill indoors or close to the side of a building.
  • Use foil or a drip pan to catch juices and help avoid grease fires.
  • To see how much propane is left in your cylinder, run a wet finger down the side. The wet streak will evaporate faster over the empty part of the cylinder.
  • To turn the cylinder valve on or off, remember “Righty, tighty/Lefty, loosey.”
