Low heat and low flame are for the safety while handling the gas grills, but not appropriate always while you are trying to roast some meat. In the built-in gas grills, there are regulators to control the flame and heat automatically. Here we will discuss how you can make it perfect for cooking.
Know the Actual Process First
Ever wondered how does the gas grill work? Without knowing this you wouldn’t be able to fix the issues. When you open the valve of the tank, gas flows out of the tank through the gas pipe. The end of the pipe is divided into two sections. One is for the burner and the other is for controlling the valves that are set to the knobs on the grill. From the knob, the gas is mixed with oxygen for burning. In this situation, when it lights the mixture of gas it flames out the burner and heat and grill.
Reason for Low Flame
The low flame is basically a safety precaution. While cooking it is indeed annoying, but it provides you protection if there is any gas leak. If the excess amount of gas comes out from the grill making a huge flame, it can be hazardous. The regulator responds on detection of the excessive flow of gas and it reduces the releasable amount of gas. This results in low flame and heat.
It can happen when the valve is opened very fast.
If the burner is on before the tank is opened, it can cause a low flame.
It can take place if the propane is shut off before the knobs.
