Propane grills for dummies

I just moved into a new apartment, and the previous tenant very kindly left me his propane grill. He said it's clean, but the tank is empty. I've never used a propane grill before, and I'd like to use it this Tuesday to grill some hot dogs and hamburgers. What do I need to know to use it properly? Assume minimal knowledge of grills in general. [more inside]

Tell me about grilling.

I'd love to start grilling. Problems: I don't (yet) have a grill and I have a non-meat-eating partner. I have two specific questions: 1) Charcoal or gas? My dad says there's no easy answer to this... Benefits of each? Any specific grills you love or hate? 2) What can I grill for my vegetarian boyfriend? Recipes or resources would be amazing.

Tzatziking Advice on Making LEGIT GYROS AT HOME.

I am CRAZY FOR GYROS. I crave a delicious, warm, foil-wrapped Greek gyros sandwich every single day and I never, ever tire of them. The place near me just closed. There's only shawarma in lavash now. It's not the same thing. As you can imagine, I am pissed. So I have decided to just become a subsistence carver. Can anyone help me build a PERSONAL GYROS RIG, and go beyond bland store-bought frozen slices into the third dimension of flavor? [more inside]

Should I cover my grill?

I forgot to put the cover on my grill last night, and now it's raining. Maybe one stop up from a drizzle, but certainly not a downpour. My gut feeling is that covering the thing now will only make the inside of the cover wet. Thoughts?

What is the ideal grill cleaning regimen?

Lifelong charcoal griller, recently bought a propane rig. It's great, but the combination of the lower heat and the larger cooking surface makes my "spray it with the hose, scrub off any big chunks, let it heat up over the coals for a while before throwing anything on" approach seem even more ill-advised.

How to generate "grilling smells?"

So we're opening up a concession stand a local soccer field tomorrow, and we're going to have a grill at which we're going to serve typical grill stuff (burgers, dogs, maybe a few fancier things here and there). What can we throw on the grill (like in a saucepan on a side burner) that can blanket the fields with the smell of home-cooked burgers and generate some serious mouth-watering? The grill's fairly small -- a fairly typical four-burner suburban soccer dad fixture, and the stand will be open for about 2-2.5 hours each night. [more inside]

Can our grill ever be used again after we used wasp spray on it?

Last night, we discovered a wasp's nest in our grill. The grill is connected to our house's natural gas lines so it isn't easily replaced. My wife sprayed the nest with Raid brand wasp and hornet spray. The active ingredients are "Prallethrin" and "Cypermethrin" and the can says the inactive ingredients include petroleum distillates. The can says to wash any food preparation surfaces that get exposed to the spray, but I worry that the grill may be difficult to adequately clean and I don't want my family ingesting dangerous chemicals. Can this grill be used again? Do you have any tips on how we can adequately clean it?

Help me restore a respectable grilling setup

My house came with a grill on the back porch. It wasn't well-maintained then and it's gotten worse through a few years of neglect. If I could easily and inexpensively repair it I'd like to, but if not I'd like to replace it. Complicating factors: it uses natural gas and is post-mounted. [more inside]

Setting the kitchen on fire: best practices.

A while ago I asked a question about stovetop grills. We didn't get one, but now we're considering an electric grill, which is what we had before and are comfortable with. Does anyone have a good recommendation for an countertop electric grill in the $25-75 range, preferably available on Amazon Prime? Are there any reasons why a stovetop would be Objectively Better than an electric (or vice-versa)?
