Not sure on your climate.
But a Holland grill cooks cooler in the coller months and Hotter in the hotter months. This type of grill doesn't reach a very high setting approx: 400 degrees. It might reach higher temperatures in the hotter weather 450-475 degrees.

Also, it has to shut down the same way every time you use your grill.

Here is a Tip to fix a grill that not getting hot:
1. Turn the gas valve knob off. then close LP tank valve knob.
2. Unscrew the plastic hose coupling knob from the LP tank. You may hear a slight "hissing" sound as pressure is released this is normal.
3.Wait a minute then screw the coupling knob back on to LP Tank.
4.With lid open.slowly open LP tank valve.
5.Relight the grill the proper way by turning gas valve knob to ON position while turning the igniter knob at the same time.
6.After you are sure the grill is lit preheat the grill for 30 minutes.

This was called purging the line or releasing the air out of the line.

Another thing your orifice could be clogged with spiders or dirt. If it is LP gas check to make sure your hose is not kinked.

Hollands are known for the slow cooking process and a Healthy way of cooking!

At what temperature do you cook bone in and boneless prime rib and how long per pound


13 - 15 minutes per pound @ 300 - 325 degrees F, pull when meat is 125 F - 130 F (internal temp.) for rare to medium-rare. Err on the low side. Allow to rest; the meat will continue to cook while resting. For example, if you cook it to be medium-rare (130ish F), then pull it out of the oven, and let it rest, it will end up being medium to medium-well (140 - 145 F) once cut. So be aware.

Bone-in, bone-out it doesn't really matter, because the bone is not in the center of the meat. It's best to let the prime warm at room temp for a period of time, before cooking. An hour or so from the refrigerator (not frozen).

Some people like to place the prime into a hot (425 F) oven or grill/smoker for 10 -15 minutes, then turn down to roasting temp. This is done to sear the outside, which will give it a crispy/seared outside. This doesn't "lock in" flavor, juices or anything else, it is more of a visual and texture thing. If you do this, the cooking time will be reduced, because the oven/grill will have to come down in temp over a period of time while the meat is cooking. I don't recommend doing this with prime rib. It ends up being overcooked and tough, due to the fast then slow roasting of the meat.

What you want to keep in mind is: roast the meat low and slow. Check the internal temp, with a meat thermometer, early to avoid overcooking. Don't forget the internal temp of the meat will rise after taking it out of the oven. Let it rest for 10 - 15 minutes before slicing the meat.

Meat weighs 2llb 20oz how long should i cook it for we like it medium rare ?


The best thing you can do is to buy a BBQ digital thermometer that you place in the meat during cooking. They have a heavy duty wire with a temperature probe on the end. Sear the meat directly over the coals (or hot side of a gas grill), then move the meat to a cool side and then insert the temperature probe and close the grill lid. Cook until it reaches desired temp, for me 125 degrees is perfect. The total cooking time is hard to judge as it depends on your grill cooking temp, but the digital thermometer takes all of the guesswork out of the equation as to when the meat is done.

My Bar B Chef grill grates are totally rusted. Are stainless steel grates better or should I stick with cast iron?


I prefer cast iron. Cast iron heats more evenly and retains temperature better. If they are falling apart from rust, junk them. If they just have surface rust and no holes, all you have to do is brush them with a steel brush at high heat. Wipe them off with a wet rag and then rub it with an onion to provide a teflon layer. if it is really heavy rust, spray oven cleaner on them and hose off. After use or for storage, clean them and then wipe them down with a cooking oil soaked rag. The oil will reduce rust build up.

Natural gas to LP


It sounds like a pressure problem. Try checking to see if a valve or regulator may be clogged. Some times a valve or regulator or event he line it self may have spider webs or spider nest inside the line and that will block the flow.

The best way to cook on this grill and how do you use the smoker on the grill. I put some meat on this grill and all my meat burn up. also I will like to know how to use the small smoke box on the side.


Hi dale37...
The small smoke box on the left is used to put your charcoal/wood in, this is where your heat and smoke will come from to cook your meat.
You will adjust your heat going to the large side by adjusting your air vent/s.
It is meant to cook the meat slowly as to make it "fall of the bone" tender.
Great for doing pulled pork also....just takes lots of time because your slow cooking the meat.
Do not use charcoal/wood under the big grill side unless you plan to stay with and turn the meat to keep from burning it.
Please take time to rate me

It takes a very long time to cook anything on the weber grill. it never gets really hot. The grill is about six years old. What do I do to correct this problem?


check for rust/debris on the nozzles (these are small screws with single hole in them inside of the burner, clean the burner, dissassembly and clean the valves on the grill NOT ON THE BOTTLE!

this should solve the problem, alternatively, if burner was not used for long time, regulator maybe stuck in this position and will need replacement.

Is meat placed in main grill or in attached box


The "offset" box is your firebox. This is where you will put your charcoal. The meat goes in the larger chamber on the grill. This type of cooking is known as indirect cooking where the heat source is not directly under the meat. A grill cooks direct with the heat source coming from charcoal or gas burners located directly under the cook grills. Smoker can really deliver some great tasting food. Be patient and learn the ins and outs of cooking with a smoker. The most important thing is to cook low and slow. try to keep your temps in the cook chamber around 225. I hope this helps.

I want to do a london broil on the GF outdoor need temp settings


If you want to cook by temperature, you can get a bbq meat thermometer. I use the one that is shaped like a fork. It can be programed to the type of meat, beef, chicken, etc. and how well done you want to cook it like medium, well etc. It has a digital read out and will beep when the correct temperature is reached.
