Why is Preheating Important?

Preheating your gas grill is essential to achieving even cooking and ensuring your food is cooked to the correct temperature.

  1. Turn on all burners to the high setting and close the lid.
  2. Let the grill preheat for 10-15 minutes.
  3. Use a grill thermometer to check the temperature inside the grill. The temperature should be between 400-450°F for most cooking methods.
  4. Once the grill has reached the desired temperature, turn off one or more burners to create a cooler and hotter zone for indirect cooking.

To maintain the proper preheat temperature, follow these tips:

  1. Keep the lid closed as much as possible to retain heat.
  2. Adjust the burners as needed to maintain the desired temperature.
