It’s important to preheat your gas grill thoroughly before cooking. Proper preheating has the following benefits:
- Preheating burns off any residue left from the last time you grilled.
- Foods tend to stick less to grates that have been preheated.
- Foods tend to cook more quickly and evenly in a grill that’s been preheated.
Check the owner’s manual for your grill for the recommended preheating instructions and length of time. Although your grill may vary, many experts recommend 10-15 minutes of preheating before grilling.
