  • The BBQ, or cooking at ten thousand feet in the snow

    The BBQ sits on the deck outside the living room on level four. It's a rather nice stainless steel unit, but some things are required to make it work. Turning the knobs not only turns on the gas, but, also, causes ignition. There are two main things to keep in mind, the gas valve, and the batteries. Yes, batteries again...

    The main gas valve to the BBQ is to the left rear of the unit (Don't bother looking for a propane tank, we don't use that. The BBQ is hooked up to the house gas line) Just make sure that the valve is open.For those of you who are unfamiliar with gas valves, the little yellow valve handle has to be parallel to the pipe for it to be open. A closed gas valve has the handle perpendicular (across) the line of the pipe.

    The battery pack is on the main "dashboard" of the BBQ; it's a little round cap that screws on, to the right of the gas burner valves. One AA batteriy goes in there. Given the fact that it gets damn cold up there, that battery might not be working all that well. There are new batteries in the kitchen, the small top drawer to the left of the electric stove top. If you do not hear a slight ticking sound when you turn the BBQ valve and press in (the ignitor), then you might need to replace the battery.

    When starting the BBQ, do the following:

    • Make sure that the main gas line to the BBQ is on.
    • Open the BBQ lid so that gas does not build up in the unit when you try to start it.
    • Turn one of the valves all the way and gently push it in, you should hear gas flow, and you should hear a slight clicking sound as the auto ignitor starts to fire. If you do not hear that clicking sound, you might need to change the battery.
    • Stand back in case it goes boom.
    • You might have to try different valves to get it to start up. Once you have one burner going, you can slowly turn on the other valves; the other burners should start from the ignition of the first one. Of course, open a valve that's next to the fired up one first so that it ignites.
    • Set your valves at the temperature that you want, feel free to close the lid. The lid has a thermostat built into it.

    Please make sure that all the burner valves are off when you're finished.

    You can also turn off the main gas valve to the unit if you feel adventurous. Saving gas allows us to keep the rental costs down.
