[off Topic] Gas Grill Question


Recommended Posts

Hello there, everyone. My first gas barbecue, a Weber Q1200, was recently purchased. The propane cartridges were also purchased. I have a few safety concerns because this is my first time using gas and owning a gas grill:

Is it safe to keep the gas cartridge connected to the line that connects the tank and the grill? I read on several sites that shutting the valve enabling gas to flow to the grill is fine.

I live in an apartment and will cook on my balcony grill. Is it safe to leave it outside? Is it alright if I keep it in my kitchen?

Do the cast iron grates need to be oiled? I sometimes oil my cast iron pan and bake it for an hour, but I'm not sure whether I should do the same with the grates.

Any additional safety and enhancement advice is much welcomed. Thank you for taking the time to read this!

Check with fire regulations first. Many places will not allow a grill on a balcony. One place we lived wouldn't even allow it on our deck which was room-size.

Weber has a phone app that is fantastic.  I answers maintenance problems.  Even better, you enter your grill serial number and the grill guide will give you exact cooking instructions for almost everything, tailored to your grill.  I have a Q2200 and have not had any cooling failures following the app instructions.

I would never have propane inside.  I have no problem leaving propane hooked up to the grill when it is stationery and I am not using it.  I would not move it around with the propane attached, other than to shift it a couple of feet.  As had been said before - don't use the grill inside.  Carbon monoxide will kill you -and turn you a pretty red color first.  A propane leak indoors allows you to kill yourself and your neighbors at the same time.
