Small Gas Grill Buyers’ Guide

How to set up a small gas grill?

Although gas grills are simple in design, setting them up may seem somewhat tricky. The first step of setting the grill up is to open the gas tank your grill. While lighting it, keep the lid closed, as it may cause build-ups of gas fumes. If the top has been closed and gas has turned on, then turn off the gas and open the cover. Wait for a couple of minutes for gas to dissipate and then start it. Moving on, attach the gas to the grill. Some gas grills may be connected to natural gas by direct line, and others may have propane tanks beneath. Lastly, turn on the gas by turning the circular shaped button.

How to know when small BBQ grill gas cylinders are out?

One of the fastest ways to estimate how much propane is left is to fill a cup with hot water, pour it down the propane tank, and feel the cool spot on the side of the tank. That spot is the level of fill. This is explained by the fact that liquid propane inside the tank absorbs heat from the water, making the wall of the tank cooler as you touch.

Another way is to weigh the tank. Stamped on the handle, you can see the tare weight and water capacity. Most of the tanks have a weight of 17 pounds and have a capacity of 20 pounds summing to 37 pounds. By weighing the tank and subtracting the tare weight, you can calculate how much liquid is inside it.

How to get the wood flavor on a small gas grill?

To get a wood flavor on a small gas grill is actually very simple. You will need aluminum foil and some wood chips. Soak two cups of wood chips in a glass of water for 15 minutes, after which drain them and dry on aluminum foil. Make sure that chips do not create holes in an aluminum packet. The combination of dry and wet wood chips will give the right amount of smoke for cooking, instead of stronger smoke in the beginning and weaker in the end.
