1. Pork Chops

Pork chops are one of our favorite foods to cook on gas grills. They’re versatile, affordable, and cook up relatively quickly. Their bland flavor allows you to customize them with different marinades and seasonings to cater to diverse tastes.

While pork chops are a breeze to prepare, they are lean cuts of meat that are easy to overcook. There are a few simple tricks you should know to make juicy and tender grilled pork chops.

For this gas grill recipe, choose bone-in thick-cut pork chops as they dry out slower during grilling. We recommend 1-¼ to 1 ½-inch thick cuts for optimal juiciness and tenderness. If you have time, brine your pork chops for 30 minutes to an hour to help them absorb more moisture.

Now, onto the grilling part. Follow these steps to make this super easy gas grill recipe:

  1. Let the pork chops sit for 30 minutes at room temperature to ensure even cooking.
  2. Preheat your gas grill to medium-high heat, typically around 375-400°F.
  3. Season the pork chops with salt, pepper, garlic, or any other seasoning or marinade of your choice. If the pork chops were brined, do not add more salt.
  4. Place the pork chops on the grill, close the lid, and let the meat cook for 4-5 minutes on each side.
  5. Use a meat thermometer to check the meat’s internal temperature. Pork chops are safe to eat once they reach an internal temperature of 145°F (medium rare).
  6. Turn up the heat on your gas grill to sear the chops on each side for 1-2 minutes or until they develop a golden-brown crust.
  7. Remove the pork chops from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes before serving.

3. Beef Kebabs

Because they’re visually impressive, kebabs are often overlooked as easy gas grill recipes. While they do require a little prep work, it’s so easy you can make the kids do it! Just make sure the younger ones have adult supervision and wear protective gloves.

You can easily modify these gas grill recipes with your favorite ingredients—pineapple chunks are a nice addition—but here’s how to make a classic beef kebab.

  1. Marinate beef cubes in soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. (You can also slice your preferred beef cut into cubes).
  2. Chop bell peppers, onions, zucchini, and squash into skewer-ready chunks.
  3. Press the beef and vegetables onto skewers.
  4. Grill on high heat for 5-10 minutes until the food is seared.

4. Cinnamon Sugar Peaches à la Mode

  1. Slice a peach in half.
  2. Remove the pit.
  3. Place thinly sliced pats of butter on the inside of the peach.
  4. Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on top.
  5. Grill on high until the peach is golden brown.
  6. Scoop ice cream into the middle.

5. Curry Chicken Breasts

Chicken breasts are cookout staples, but it’s no secret that they can be a bit, well, bland. You can jazz up a lot of easy gas grill recipes by replacing your usual spices with curry powder. 

For a more subtle curry flavor, add a pinch of curry powder to your usual dry rub or marinade. A little goes a long way!

Now, simply follow our guide to grilling juicy chicken breasts. This recipe works with chicken thighs, too!
