Using gas grill as an oven?
This is my first Thanksgiving with only one oven (first-world problem). I don't want to do the turkey on the gas grill, but I was wondering if I could (1) cook stuffing on it or (2) at least warm up side dishes on it. I was thinking maybe I could turn the flame on one side and put the food on the other side. Does this work?
While I agree you certainly could use your gas grill to keep things warm or heat items.....Im going to disagree a little and caution you to consider these points as well:
* depending on where you reside, i.e., a cold or warm climate.....maintaining temperature is a little harder than you home oven.
* depending on the usage of your grill, you may impart some unintended smoke to your items being reheated.
* depending on the cleanliness or fuel source.....your serving dishes could become coated with film from the grill/grease. This may be the most important point if you intend to go from grill to table.
