Gas Grill Setup

There’s nothing complicated about lighting a gas grill. However, gas grill operation does vary, so be sure to consult the owner’s manual that came with your grill.


To light a Weber® gas grill, first open the lid so unlit gas fumes don't collect in the cooking box.


Next, slowly open the valve on your propane tank (or natural gas line) all the way and wait a minute for the gas to travel through the gas line.


Then turn on the burners, setting them all to high.


Close the lid and preheat the grill for 10 to 15 minutes.


When the temperature reaches 500°F, use a long-handled grill brush to clean the cooking grates. Then adjust the burners to the suggested method and temperature in the recipe.
