Gas Grilling Tips
Use the upper cooking grid (warming rack) for keeping cooked food warm, toasting breads or cooking delicate foods in aluminum foil pouches.
Use the side burner of your grill like a normal kitchen range for boiling, sautéing or frying.
To keep food from sticking to the grids, spray or coat the food with cooking oil before lighting.
Flare Ups are a flash of fire caused by juices falling on the grill burner. They are common when cooking meats with a high fat content. To reduce flare-ups, keep your grill clean, use lean cuts of meat (or trim fat) and avoid cooking on very high temperatures. Keeping the lid closed while grilling can help prevent flare-ups. To tame a flare-up, move food to another area of the cooking surface. You may need to turn all the burners OFF until the flames subside. Do not spray water on flare-ups!
Place delicate foods like fish and vegetables in aluminum foil pouches and indirect cook or place on upper cooking levels (warming rack).
WARNING: Never cover entire cooking area with aluminum foil.
To avoid losing natural juices, use long-handled tongs or spatulas instead of forks and turn foods over just once during cooking.
When direct cooking, adjust your burners to different levels so foods can be prepared to different internal temperatures at the same time.
When indirect cooking roasts and larger cuts of meat, place meat onto a roasting rack inside a heavy gauge metal pan. Place pan over the un-lit burners.
Try water pans to reduce flare-ups and cook juicer meats. Before starting grill, remove cooking grids and place a heavy duty shallow pan directly on heat plates. Fill half way with water, fruit juices or other flavored liquids. Replace cooking grids and position food over the loaded pan.
Clean cooking grids and racks after every use with a quality grill brush designed for your grid material.
After every use, allow grill to cool. Then protect clean cooking grids with a light coat of cooking oil, empty grease pan, wipe outside surfaces with a suitable kitchen cleaner and protect surfaces with a quality cover that properly fits your grill.
A gas grill is ideal for reheating leftover pizza. Set burners on low and place pizza slices directly on preheated cooking grid. Close lid and cook until cheese starts to bubble.
