One of the great things about gas grilling is the fact that it makes things simple when getting your heat source going.
Most modern gas grills start with a simple click of the starter button. They rise to your selected heat setting in a matter of minutes and maintain that level until you twist a knob to lower it or raise it. Here are a few things you can do to get the most flavors when using your gas grill.

The first thing to do is too realize the limitations of your grill. Smaller gas grills are perfect for quick and easy grilling. However smaller gas grills may not lend themselves to cooking larger items or for more people.
Smaller grills often have fewer burners as well which would limit the ability to vary cooking temperatures for different items. On the other hand a smaller gas grill requires less space, is easy to move, and can put out flavor packed food just like the bigger versions only in smaller amounts.
Just because you have a gas grill does not mean you have to miss the flavor of cooking with wood. Many gas grills now come equipped with wood chip compartments. If not; you can always make use of commercial wood chip containers or make your own. Just a note of caution when using a wood chip container – make sure you read over the instructions from your grill manufacture as well as the instructions with the container.
Wood Chip Note: Make sure to get the wood chip container going before you start grilling. The chips will take a few minutes to heat up and start smoking. If you don’t wait you might finish grilling those burgers, chops, and chicken before the wood chips get going.
