What do you do if you smell gas while grilling?
If the smell of gas stops when you turn off your grill, you can discontinue use and call a professional to service it. If the smell persists, however, contact the fire department immediately.
Turn off the tank and burners, get away from the grill, and see if the smell persists.
Move the grill and find out where the smell is coming from.
Turn off the grill, sell it, and resign to eating out instead.
Don't worry, it's normal.
