So…we have ignition!
And the side burner works too!
You guys…I’m so excited! After following your advice and cleaning everything out carefully and going back to the hardware store and asking more pertinent questions, and watching a couple of videos online, I’ve lit my first gas grill successfully. I’m just a bit closer to successfully manning a grill at my girlfriend’s bbq thing this weekend.
Now I need to manage the shopping list. For this I will cross-post on the cooking thread, because @ArmandoPenblade has more experience, and may be more likely to grab it there.
The numbers are…about 30 adults and kids. The invite asks folks to bring stuff they might like to grill–excepting pork–but we cannot rely upon that. We have from 5 to 10 people to provide proteins for as well, from meat to veg.
So I need help on figuring the amount of meat I might need to buy to make burgers for, say, 10 people. And also help figuring on extras. I’m building a list, but I’d love input from you all how have done grills and grilling more than I have in the last few years.
Thanks again, folks!
