Working with gas grills and propane in Rocky Mount, NC every day, we’re passionate with helping customers get the most out of our products. Especially if you’re just starting out, it can be easy to make mistakes on the grill. With Summer just around the corner, now is a great time to brush up on best practices. With that in mind, here are 3 quick grilling tips to remember.

1. Keep It Clean

Having a dirty grill doesn’t just look bad, it can cause future disasters. It can flare up, smoke constantly and leaves a bad flavor on your food. Keeping your grill clean will reduce all of these issues. For a clean grill, check out our handy cleaning tips.

2. Be Careful with Sugar

While we all love a good sugar rub, it burns at 265 degrees F. Whenever you cook foods with sauces or rubs that contain sugar, make sure to stay below this temperature or you’ll have burned and blackened food.

3. Always Have Plenty of Fuel

More than anything, you need to make sure you have backup fuel for your propane gas grill.  If you have a spare, full propane tank available it will take you a couple of minutes to get cooking again as opposed to the time it would take you to run out to the store to get it.
