I have the same grill,and sometimes the same problem.First,with the gas off or completely disconnected,remove the grill grates and the flavor bars from the grill.Now you can see the heating element.A small wire brush will do the trick.Gently clean all the little holes in the element where the gas comes out.Then,with compressed air or even canned air(like what you use to clean a computer with)blow out the holes you just cleaned.Reassemble the grill and light.Should work fine after that.

SOURCE: I can smell the gas
It's either the flame sensor or the gas valve.
The sensor senses flame and sends signal to the valve, the valve then sends gas through the burner/s.
If it's a thermocouple (looks like thisbefore installed) http://furnaceparts.com/eshop/products/thermocouple.jpg
then replace the thermocouple.
It sits right in the flame pattern and they usually cost less than ten bucks.

If the flame doesn't go completely around the burner, ther is an obstruction at the outlet holes. Make sure all outlet are clear of dirt, rust,or any material. Even water will block the outlets.

SOURCE: burner won't ignite
Eventually grease and other debris will accumulate around the burners and require cleaning. Remove the burners, they should pull straight up and out and clean any grease. Also clean the inside of the base as best as possible. Replace burners and you'll be enjoying a grilled meal in no time.

On a call for heat, the 24 volt thermostat sends a signal to the control module. The control module will indicate a call for heat with a light on the control either blinking or remaing solid depending upon model. The inducer (exhaust) blower will purge all gasses from the furnace and pressurize a pressure switch. Once the pressure switch tells the module to continue, the electronic ignition will energize and send 120 volts to the igniter. The igniter will glow and you will be able to see it if viewed thru the small inspection port. Once the igniter gets hot enough, it sends a signal to the module opening up the gas valve (24 volts). Either a pilot will come on or the burner tube will ignite then spread the flame to all burners. Lastly a safety sensor will be looking for a certain temperature within a few seconds and the furnace will continue to operate and the room air blower will turn on in a minute or two.
What could go wrong? The unit will not run if there is no signal from the thermostat (bad thermostat or broken wire), the control module does not sense a signal from the thermostat (bad control), the inducer does not energize (bad motor), the pressure switch does not close (blocked vent piping, bad switch, plugged condensate hose), the igniter does not energize (bad control, bad igniter), the gas valve does not open or there is no gas (bad gas valve, broken wire, no gas), the pilot does not light (dirty pilot), the burner does not light (bad burner, plugged orifice, not enough combustion air), the flame does not spread to each burner (bad flame spreader, dirty flame spreader, more bad burners), the flame safety sensor does not detect flame (dirty or bad flame spreader, bad flame sensor, broken wire, bad control), or the room air blower does not energize (bad fan motor, bad control).
