Italian Sausage is fun to grill.Bring the sausage up to room temperature before grilling. That way they will cook evenly. Preheat your grill to medium heat (350 is fine). Place the sausage links on the grill and cook slowly. Turn the links frequently, so that all sides get that light crispy outer texture and cook evenly. Never ever use a fork to move or turn the sausage links. Always use tongs. You don't want to pierce the meat and loose all those tasty juices. Depending on how many you're cooking, 15 to 20 minutes is usually enough. Remove one from the grill and test it for donness, by slicing it in half with a knife. If the inside is still pink, give them 5 more minutes. If it's not, remove the sausages and enjoy!

I like ,with sauteed onions and lots of Plockman's Mustard.

This sounds like a reg problem not enough pressure for 3 burners .

Weber Genesis... | Answered on Jun 25, 2017


It could be a partially blocked gas jet or insufficient gas pressure is reaching the jet.

Clearly the pipes and valve should be checked if cleaning the jet doesn't provide a cure.
It is a good idea to compare the jet size and air bleed size with specifications. If it is set up for propane and being used with butane it will display the inefficiency you described.

There have been a few appliances designed for use with bottled gas that weren't intended to be used with a pressure regulator and lots of propane appliances that need a higher pressure than the standard fixed regulator can supply and an adjustable regulator should be used instead.

I've been in the propane business 28 years and have found regulators from the 1950's still in use today. Regulator manufacturers tell us they should be replaced after 25 years. It should typically outlast the grill itself, which often require new burners, cooking grids, etc. The hissing sound can just be the flow of gas thru the regulator. If you smell gas however, then you should replace it. If it is affecting the pressure to the burners and not getting hot enough to cook properly, then replace it as well.

The burner has a fixed orifice, but there may be an adjustable air shutter (to adjust more or less air) at the end of the venturi tube that inserts over the orifice. If not, also try removing the gas valve knob and see if there is a small screw inside the shaft that you can adjust the flames. Most stoves have these. Also be sure the burner hasn't been spilled on. it may just need to be cleaned for a proper flame.

This is a common problem with grills purchased after 2001 and also with full propane tanks or tanks with excessive pressure in them. There is a new safety feature inside the regulator called a 'surge protector'. If you open your propane bottle valve too quickly or if you try attaching a tank with the tank valve in the 'open' position, the propane wants to 'surge' into the grill.

When the propane surges into the regulator (located on the grill hose) the 'surge protector' (inside the regulator) kicks on. When this happens you will not be able to get your grill lit, and if you do, it will be a small blue flame and the grill will not heat up.

So what to do if you trip the surge protector and can't get your grill to light or heat up?

Shut the tank off and shut the valves on the grill off. Disconnect the tank from the grill hose. When you disconnect the tank from the hose you will hear the excess pressure of propane release. This is an indication that you have re-set the regulator's surge protector.

Now that you have deactivated or reset the surge protector, reconnect the tank. Make sure the valve on the tank and the valves on the grill are in the closed and in the off position. After you reconnect the tank to the hose, SLOWLY open the tank valve (making sure the valves on the grill are in the OFF position).

Since you have slowly opened the valve on the tank, the propane did not surge into the regulator and the surge protector did not activate.

Now open 1 valve on the grill and light it. You should get a nice flame. If your grill has more than one valve, open each following valve in sequential order to extend the flames to the other burners.

Thanks for reading and I hope this helps.

The only thing you can do if Weber doesn't have a natural gas manifold for their grills , is to buy one that will fit. They use propane on outside grills because of the stability of the gas. Natural gas will blow out much easier.

sounds like a problem with tank valve. Try attaching back to grill. Open valve slowly, if you open to fast valve thinks it is leaking and shuts down. If this doesnt work try a differant tank, buy always open slowly.

Hello...I have the same grill and want to do the same conversion...From my research, you need to drill out the three orifices with a size #53 wire gauge drill bit. ( this resizes each orifice to 12000 BTU's each, which the grill is rated at 36000 BTU's).Then remove the existing hose and regulator. Replace the hose with a Quick disconnect compression fitted hose. The NG supply needs to have a pressure regulator installed, with a shutoff and quick disconnect fitting installed. Connect the hoes from the grill to the supply, and fire it up...THIS IS WHAT I INTEND ON DOING TO MY GRILL,BUT YOU DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK>>>
