Dang cold froze my gas grill

Last Updated on

I purchased a T-Bone steak (yellow tag sale) for my son and I for lunch. He went out to grill it and said the grill wasn’t working. The cylinder was full. I got a hair dryer and heated up the regulator and valve a little. After a couple of seconds we had a full flame and were on our way to a delicious T-Bone lunch.  DISCLAIMER – Please consider that this was applying heat to a canister of flammable gas. Use at your own risk.
