Weber 220 Gas Grill User Manual

You must preheat the grill before you cook on it. First,
open the lid and follow lighting instructions. Close the
lid and let the grill heat for about 10 minutes. Then you
will be ready to grill.
A light coating of oil will help brown your food evenly
and keep it from sticking to the cooking grate. Always
brush or spray oil onto your food, not directly onto the
cooking grate.
We suggest that you grill with the lid down. Why?
Because it reduces the chance of flare-ups, and cooks
your food faster and more evenly.
When using a marinade, sauce or glaze with a high
sugar content or other ingredients that burn easily, only
brush it onto the food during the last 10 to 15 minutes
of grilling.
