Proper installation is key to a safe and enjoyable grilling experience. We recommend placing your grill on a stable, level surface and keeping it away from flammable materials. Regular maintenance, such as cleaning the grill grates and checking for gas leaks, is essential for safety and to ensure your grill remains a focal point of your outdoor kitchen for years to come.

Mastering Grilling Techniques

Whether you’re new to grilling or looking to refine your skills, mastering a few basic techniques can make all the difference.
