Grill won't stay lit on windy days!

Here's a question about what must be a very annoying problem-- keeping a grill lit on a windy day. 



Porfirio asks


"I have limited space for a grill. I purchased one with 10,000 BTU’s. It works fine but will not stay lit on windy days. What are your recommendations?"


Porfirio seems ready to buy a new grill. But maybe there's something he can do to make his current grill more wind-resistant. What's the word for Porfirio?

Hi there Porfirio,

Wind and gas grills…


Gas grills, for safety reasons need to be vented.  As you know this may become a problem on a windy day.  You can try and try your grill so the wind will blow on a different angle or perhaps relocate your grill to an area that has less wind.


Another option is to use a smoker instead of a gas grill.  Most smokers are closed and some even have the option to be a charcoal grill also.
