are the fire red , orange or blue?
must likely is the burner control.
check the air control at the back of the burner control, it should be open all the way.
it it is, then try another themostate.

It sounds like you may be "vapor locking" the grill...after you are done cooking on the grill, how do you shut it off? Do you close the tank valve first then close the burner valves or do you turn off the burner valves then shut the gas off at the tank? If you turn the burners off before turning the gas off, you are creating a "vapor-lock" where air gets trapped in the line and you get the sputtering you are talking about.
Try this first, turn the gas on, then light the grill...once it is lit, turn off the gas and wait for the flame to fully extinguish then turn the burners off. Now try to light it again...if it is still sputtering, repeat the procedure above to purge the air out of the line.
If that procedure does not fix your issue after three tries, go get a new line and regulator and install then do that same procedure again. This should fix your issue once and for all.
If you experience any trouble with this, let me know here. Good Luck!

The new style
OPD valves have a small brass ring located in the female
fitting on the LP tank. Over time this ring can work loose and then it
does not allow the male fitting to fully depress the OPD valve thus
reducing your gas flow
Using a small flat bladed screw driver tighten the small brass ring This should solve your problem
IF not you might want to remove the cap (white) on your regulator and try slowly adjusting the regulator, make small adjustments and try the BBQ My Weber if I set the front and back burners to MED I get right at 350 degrees in 60 degree outdoor temps. Adjusting the regulator will take some time to get it right but If it is not your tank it is most likely your regulator out of adjustment

SOURCE: Gas not getting to grill
Two things could be wrong. Tank valve could be bad, not allowing gas to flow. Or regulator could be bad not allowing gas to pass. Try taking the tank off and pushing a screwdriver into the end of it with the tank open, if gas doesn't come out tank valve is bad, valve has a spring in it to shut down if starts leaking. If tank valve is good regulator must be bad. I am leaning more towards to the tank valve.

It could be a defective LP gas regulator or a restriction somewhere in the gas line for the bbq. This can also happen if the propane tank is overfilled.
First make sure that the LP tank is not overfilled. If you open the bleeder hole on the tank(small screw next to the valve) there should be no liquids coming out. If liquid propane is coming out then the tank is overfilled. Keep the bleeder screw loose until the liquid disappears then tighten. Re-connect the tank and see if that fixes the problem.
Then inspect all the gas lines on the bbq. Make sure that there are no kinks or crushed lines.
Then take a look at the gas regulator. Try turning on all the burners then give the regulator a couple good taps on the housing with something solid. See if the burner changes size. If it does and then goes back down it could be the gas regulator. Also take a look at the regulator housing. There should be a very small hole on the housing and it might be labled "vent". Make sure that this little hole is not plugged with any debris or that can cause a low pressure problem. You can use a sewing needle to gently poke out the hole. You will know if it worked because the burners will become much higher. And you could also try disconnecting the hose and regulator assembly from the bbq then turn on the LP tank slowly with the regulator connected. You should get plenty of gas flow from the end of the hose. Then use your hand to block and release the flow a couple times to try and clear any debris that might stuck in the regulator.BE VERY CAREFUL DOING THIS!!! MAKE SURE YOU ARE CLEAR OF ANY SOURCES OF IGNITION BEFORE TRYING TO CLEAR THE REGULATOR. Then reconnect the hose regulator and tank to see if the problem is fixed. If you are getting very low flow from the hose with the regulator disconnected then it is probably a defective regulator. They are pretty standard and you can purchase a new LP hose and regulator assembly from most home improvement stores.
If the regulator checks out good then I would think that there is a restriction in the main gas line for the bbq after the regulator. You will need you dis-assemble the main line and blow it out with some compressed air to clear the restriction.
