Natural Gas Grills: A Convenient Summer Cooking Option

Ever run out of gas mid-grilling, or go to start the grill and squeeze out the last drop of
lighter fluid? These problems can put the fire out on any grilling plans.

With a natural gas grill, you never have to worry about these dinner plan glitches. A natural gas grill is hooked directly to your home’s natural gas supply, so gas is always available.

Plus, natural gas grills eliminate the hassles of cleaning the ashes out of a charcoal grill or refilling a propane tank. Natural gas grills offer fast heating, precision, and the smoky flavor associated with grilling.

Today’s grills boast a multitude of features like side burners, warming racks and rotisseries. Cost ranges from $150 to $5,000, depending on materials, options and installation requirements.

Natural gas grills must be installed and inspected by a licensed heating and air conditioning contractor.


Maintaining a natural gas grill is a simple task, but very important to ensuring that your grill functions properly and remains safe. Remember these important steps for maintaining your grill:

• Clean grill every time you cook.

• Leave the burner on for 10 to 15 minutes after use with the lid closed to burn off excess food.

• While the grate is still warm, brush it with a stiff wire grill brush.

• Inspect your grill hoses periodically for cracks, brittleness, holes, leaks or damage. Never use matches or lighters to check for leaks.

• Always follow manufacturers’ instructions for grill maintenance and safety.
