What do you do if you smell gas while grilling?
If the smell of gas stops when you turn off your grill, you can discontinue use and call a professional to service it. If the smell persists, however, contact the fire department immediately.
Turn off the tank and burners, get away from the grill, and see if the smell persists.
Move the grill and find out where the smell is coming from.
Turn off the grill, sell it, and resign to eating out instead.
Don't worry, it's normal.
Where should meat be kept while marinating?
Bacteria multiplies on raw meat in warm temperatures. Keep it in the fridge (or even the freezer) to avoid contamination.
What is an OPD and what does it look like?
Overfill protection devices, which are found on propane cylinders, stop the propane flow before capacity is reached to help avoid leaks.
Local Police Department — black uniform and shiny badge, pinnacle of grilling authority.
Overfill Prevention Device — a triangular knob on what looks like a garden-hose faucet.
Optimal Propane Dashboard — a huge dial with lots of numbers on the propane tank.
Olfactory Product Detector — a nose on the inside of the grill that detects what food is cooking.
How long can food be kept out after grilling?
Be sure to refrigerate grilled food promptly after 2 hours (or 1 hour if it's hotter than 90°F outside).
When is it okay to reuse marinade?
Never reuse marinade that once contained raw meat (unless you boil it right before reusing).
What kind of fire extinguisher should you NEVER use on a grease fire?
Water is one of the worst things you can apply to a greasy fire, and can make a fire far fiercer than it already was!
If you can't find a fire extinguisher, what else can you use to control small grease fires?
Baking soda helps control flare-ups, but keep a bucket of sand or a high-pressure garden hose nearby for larger fires.
What is the minimum recommended distance that should be between the BBQ and all non-chefs?
6 feet is the recommended distance to keep between the BBQ and guests, since they may be slower to react if you run into any problems.
