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!

Leg of pork 1.780 kilos how log do I cook it for


There's no magic number. It depends on what sort of result you want, the heat of your grill, the temperature of your meat, even your altitude. I would do a reverse sear, which means building a two-zone fire (or lighting only half of your gas burners), then using a meat thermometer probe and cooking it on the cool side of the grill until the middle of the roast reaches about 10 degrees (F) below where you want it. Then switch to the hot side of the grill and finish the outside (avoid lengthy flare ups). Let it rest, lightly tented with foil, for at least 20 minutes to give the juices time to redistribute and residual cooking to take place. Personally, I prefer my pork around 140 degrees (F), juicy and slightly pink.

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.

How can i sear with my weber gas grill?


When you sear meat all you are doing is cooking the outside at high temperature so a caramelized crust forms. To do this on a gas grill turn all of your burners on high, close the top and let the grill get very hot, I usually shoot for around 400 to 450 degrees. When you put the meat on the grill do it fast, directly over the heat source and close the top to keep the heat up. You'll have to experiment but usually about a minute and a half to two minutes per side is all it takes. You want the meat to be thoroughly browned on the outside. Now turn the heat down or off on one side if your grill is set up for that, flip the meat and cook it slowly on the side of the grill that's turned off or over indirect heat to your desired done-ness. This will depend totally on the thickness of your meat, again experiment. Another important step is to let the meat stand for five to ten minutes after taking it off the grill. This keeps all the juices from running out of the meat the first time you cut into it and ending up on your plate.

How to char-broil burgers


You want to know how to char broil hamburgers right? Here is what you do! Start your BBQ 5 to 10 minutes before you put your burgers on (for gas BBQ) and let the metal racks heat up. Keep the top closed to let the heat go through the unit.

If your using a charcoal bbq wait until your coils are white hot and the racks are as hot as you can get them.

Don't buy the hamburger meat that has the smaller amount of fat in it. Get the stuff that has 15 to 20% fat in it. The juice in the fat will help cook the meat and taste better in a burger.

Put your rack on the lowest place as close to your fire/coals as possible.

When the bbq is hot Take your patties and plut them on the rack. If its hot enough you should hear a sizzle sound. DO NOT TURN THE MEAT. Let it sit on the grill and every few minutes take your spatula and press the meat flat on the grill to release more juices and get more attention from the flame or coals. This is what makes the black grill lines on the meat.

You only flip a grilled burger one time after putting it on the bbq. It should cook at least ten minutes or more on one side. If you turn the meat and there are no marks on it then you didn't wait long enough.

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.

What is the best way to clean the grill?


use a good wire brush on the burners each time you use it before and after cooking. every season take the grill grates and flare reducers out and clean them well with a wire brush and or steel wool and clean out any residue in side the grill. make sure the grease catcher gets cleaned often as needed. blow out the gas manifolds with air in the spring to remove spider webs or insect webs etc. this should keep your grill working well for 10-15 years. replace the grates or flare plates when needed.also lightly clean the burners when you have the grill taken apart with steel woll then blow them out as well to keep all the openings clear. happy grilling.
