I had the same issue.
Take the lid assembly off and remove the metal shield over the burner controls.
This will allow you to remove the black cover that you see on the front of the grill and will give you access to the burner controls behind the knobs.

there is an almost diamond shaped metal piece with a screw in the top and one in the bottom that the know shaft runs through.. take note how it is currently positioned and then remove the screws and the piece of metal will come off.. dont lose the spring or lock washer.

you will now have access to the valve which is your issue. i sprayed some liquid wrench and i used a large common head screw driver to "beak" the valve to allow it to turn. Test it so you know which position to return the valve to and then put it all back together.

There is an O-ring on the shaft that turns to control the flame height it can get old & get to hard or crack letting gas leak out this gas can start burning behind the knob making it very hot.
Some O-rings can be replaced on some grills. If not you'll need to replace the whole knob unit. Or it may be time for a new grill. The knob is made of bakelite that's why it dosen't melt or burn.

A normal BBQ grill? Season and oil the meat. Preheat the grill, put the meat on top. Turn after a few minutes. Check for doneness.

There is lots of grilling information on Google.

You will need to replace the nat gas orifices with propane ones, as propane orifices have smaller holes than nat gas ones. If you can't find a conversion kit for your grill, take it to a local propane co and have them convert it for you. What I do is drill out the existing orifices on the grill and install a spud, then redrill the spud with the smaller hole for LP-Gas. Then you will need to buy a regulator and hose and a 20# propane cylinder, if you don't have one. You can get those things from the propane co too. Call around first and see if anyone can help you.

NOTE: If your grill data plate isn't marked with the BTU rating of each burner, look at the nat gas orifices and see if there is a number stamped on it. I can reference this number to tell you what BTU rating they are drilled for and use that to redrill for propane. If they are not stamped with a number, then I would use my nat gas orifice drills to gauge what hole size it is. Hopefully you can find a local propane co that carries these orifice drill kits and orifice spuds to get the job done. You didn't mention the grill brand or model #, so I can't help with specifics until I know what you have. I may be able to find a conversion kit online if I knew that info.
