Barbecues

Overview


The Convenience of Natural Gas Barbecues

Natural gas barbecues make year-round grilling a breeze. No more heavy tanks to lug back and forth and no worries about running out of fuel.

A natural gas grill:

  • Can be hooked up to your home's gas line
  • Heats up quickly, so it's ready to cook when you are
  • Is safe and easy to use
  • Can have multiple burners with individual controls, allowing you to cook different foods at the same time

Buying tips 

  • Choose a barbecue with at least 400 square inches of grilling space if you like to grill multiple foods for a crowd
  • Get one with a built-in thermometer which tells you when your meat is cooked perfectly
  • A fat drainage system will help you reduce flare-ups
  • Warming racks, side-burners and food prep areas are great add-ons that make grilling an entire meal easy and convenient
  • Two-burner systems have better heat control and work well for indirect cooking

Professional installation


 Quick-connect convenience

  • Natural gas grills are more convenient than ever thanks to quick-connect outlets. An outdoor quick-connect outlet has a long, flexible hose that gives you the freedom to move your barbecue.
  • There's no need to worry about gas leaking. Quick-connect outlets won't let you turn on the gas until you've connected your barbecue correctly. They’re inexpensive and can be installed by a licenced HVAC contractor.

Practical tips for using your grill

  • Use long-handled barbecue tools and heat-proof mitts
  • Don't wear loose clothing—watch for dangling apron strings and shirt tails
  • Never leave your children or pets alone near a hot grill
  • Watch your fingers—grills stay hot long after you're finished barbecuing
