Take gas grill out two hundred yards from dwelling with two full LP bottles, shoot one with a .308 rifle, and duck behind sonething solid. Problem solved after you hear the big boom and wait about ten seconds, to make sure that both bottles blew at once.

No way to stop it. Greasy foods like ribeyes or skin-on chicken will burn your house down.

Next grill you buy, try a no flare grill. I have a charbroil infra red and it never flares, not even while grilling ribeyes.

what are you cooking, and how high?

And is your grill a piece of shit?

Legit way, go to a welding supply store and ask for "tip cleaner" for a welding torch,and clean out each and every gas jet hole on each burner with it. What you are getting is the burning of crap that hs congealed in the holes of them. But I still support my first answer, go green as in wood/charcoal, there is flavor in those fuels.

Cook with the lid open. When you close the lid on a charcoal pit, the lack of oxygen drowns the fire. With a gas grill, it has it a fuel source (propane). Closing the lid doesn't allow the grease laden vapors to escape so flame ups become worse with the lid closed. If it's something you want to slow cook, brown over direct heat, then shut off the burners on one side. Move the product to that side and just let the radiant heat cook it the rest of the way.

Best way is to never use a gas grill.

Buy a Weber or Charcoal grill.

Propane needs oxygen for combustion just as much as charcoal does.

Get a good grill.

Well DUH. That is one of the secrets you dumbass. It ain't that hard to clean. When you take the last of your food off, crank it up to high and leave it there until it stops smoking.

It'll happen. Really no way around it. Particularly if you cook steaks or ribs, something with a lot of fat that will drip off it. That's what starts it.

If you have a lid for your grill, use that. That'll keep them to a minimum. But if you're cooking in open air, those flames will feed off the oxygen.

ETA: and when grilling, don't have your flames jacked up to the moon. Have it around medium heat. That'll be perfect.

re: what's the secret to keep gas grills from flaming up?
My infrared grill rarely flares up. Actually the only time i had any kind of fire was cooking armadillo eggs.

The huge drawback to these grills is that the stuff that would normaly drip to the bottom of the grill just settles on top of plate that's supposed to prevent flareups. And it's kind of a bitch to clean because the grates are so wide a wirebrush is almost useless.I use my pressure washer to clean the grates.


But hey....no "flareups".

I have a Weber Natural Gas Grill and I will never buy another charcoal grill. I heat mine up as hot as it will go. Burn off anything. Put it on low to medium and I have no problems with flaming up. Sounds like a shitty grill

Buy a Weber. It cost more up front, but you avoid alot of issues that are common with cheaper gas grills, and they last forever so the overall price difference is negligible.
