2. Move gas hoses as far away as possible from hot surfaces and dripping grease.
3. Replace scratched or nicked connectors, which can eventually leak gas.
4. If you detect a gas leak, immediately turn of the gas at the take and don’t attempt to light the grill until it is repaired.
5. Never use the grill indoors; always place it at least 10 feet away from buildings or structures.
6. Keep the lid open when lighting the grill. If it does not light in the first several attempts, wait five minutes before trying again so the gas can dissipate.
