Wolf Outdoor Gas Grills – Models and Grill Parts

You might have heard of Wolf ovens and stoves, but they are a newer player in the outdoor gas grill industry.Wolf Outdoor Gas Grill Freestanding

They’ve been making Wolf outdoor gas grills since the early 2010s but promise that their previous experience and quality is in every inch of their grill line. Prior to 2000, the Wolf name was independently-owned and offered mostly commercial cooking appliance solutions. In 2000, the company Sub-Zero acquired Wolf.

Over the past 2 decades, the Sub-Zero group, previously famous for high-quality refrigerators, expanded the line of Wolf cooking appliances in the kitchen.

Wolf Outdoor Gas Grill Built InIn 2013, the company rolled out the newest line of appliances, over 70 in all, and it included – you guessed it – their outdoor cooking appliances: Wolf Outdoor Gas Grills.

Wolf Outdoor Grills line is simple and easy to understand. They offer multiple widths options for your outdoor kitchen or freestanding needs.

Wolf grills are available in 30″, 36″, 42″, and 54″ widths.

The model numbers are simple, the first two letters: OG stand for Outdoor Grill and the numbers are the length. The current models are: OG30, OG36, OG42, and OG54.

Wolf Outdoor Gas grills are available drop-in or freestanding.

You also have the option of natural gas (NG) or liquid propane (LP) in all models. They are 18-gauge stainless steel construction and include an infrared rear rotisserie burner with rotisserie.

Wolf Gas Grills Parts

If you’re familiar with the brand Twin Eagles, these specifications might look familiar to you. Twin Eagles is the manufacturer for Wolf Brand gas grills.

We love the recipes and videos they out together on their “Reclaim The Kitchen” site.

The catch is the price range.

The smallest model begins at $5000 and the larger models with extra add-ons could go over $10,000. If that’s the kind of price range you’re looking at, or if you find one of these grills in a home you purchase, it will be well worth proper upkeep.

An outdoor gas grill like this is an investment.

You can still expect to replace the burners, cooking grids, and heat plates every 3-5 years. We’ve added the brand Wolf to our line of available gas grill parts replacements. We currently carry the burners, heat plates, briquette trays, and flash ignitor. Our parts are high quality stainless steel and modeled exactly from the original parts.

With our large order discount system, we believe you’ll find the best price for Wolf gas grill replacement parts on our website.

As always, if you have any questions about your Wolf outdoor gas grill, or any gas grill, give us a call!

We’re your gas grill experts, ready at the phone or on email to get your questions answered and get you back to grillin’!

Can You Grill A Turkey? – How to Grill a Delicious Turkey

Can You Grill a Turkey?

Happy Thanksgiving Week to all you Grillers out there. If the weather is cooling down, but you aren’t quite ready to put away your grill for the winter, you might be wondering if you can grill your turkey this week. In fact, grilled turkey the best turkey we’ve ever tasted. We know because Grill Girl had to try it out at the office one day.

You can easily grill a turkey on your gas grill with delicious results. Heat your grill to 325 degrees and use indirect heat, smoking chips, and the spatchcock method. Then get ready for a Thanksgiving meal worth celebrating. Check out details below or watch Grill Girl’s step by step videos!

Grill a Turkey, Step 1: Spatchcock the bird.

If you want to grill your turkey this year, Grill Girl highly recommends cutting out the back bone and flattening the bird down by breaking the rib bones. Then, cook the bird breast-side up. While the inside of the turkey gets cooked, the thighs and wings get done with a crispy skin. Most importantly, the breasts are cooked but not dry.

What’s in Grill Girl’s Roasting Pan?

Combine 1 Cup Apple Cider, 1 Bottle White Wine, 1 Quartered Onion, 2-3 Halved Carrots, 2-3 Halved Pieces of Celery, 3-4 Smashed Garlic Cloves, and 1-2 Teaspoons Ground Black Pepper.
A note from Grill Girl: “Feel free to use one bottle minus one cup of wine in the roasting pan, but drink it AFTER you cut out the backbone of the bird. You need to be sober for that part.”

“Salt The Bird” Tips

Grill Girl’s go-to rub for poultry is 2:1 Herbs de Provence and kosher salt (for a whole turkey, it’s about 1/2 cup herbs, 1/4 cup salt). Herbs de Provence is a blend of dried herbs and spices, that traditionally includes thyme, basil, rosemary, tarragon, savory, marjoram, oregano, and bay leaf. If those spices are a little much for you or you simply don’t have that blend, you can use any of those in combination with each other.

Spread the rub all over the skin. Then, work the rub under the skin where you can, including the thighs and the breasts. Lastly, sprinkle the remainder on the underside of the bird’s rib cage.

Grill a Turkey, Step 2: Prepare The Grill

Get smoke flavor into the turkey with smoking wood chips. You’ll need 4 cups of wood chips (whatever type you like best). Use one packet of dry chips and one packet of wet chips for maximum flavor. In other words, soak half the chips for about 15 minutes in water. After that, make 2 packets using aluminum foil with 2 cups of dry chips in one packet and 2 cups of wet chips in the other. Additionally, cut slits in the top of your packets. In the grill, place the packets directly over whichever burner is turned on. Rest the packets on the heat plates or briquettes. You can use a cast iron or stainless steel smoking tray instead.

Grill a Turkey, Step 3: Grill The Bird

First, remove your cooking grids. Heat your grill to 325 degrees. Then, turn off half your grill. Place the roasting pan over the burners that are turned off and the smoking chips over the burners that are turned on. The roasting pan and smoking chips will sit on the heat plates or briquettes you have covering your burners. Finally, replace your cooking grids and put the turkey over the roasting pan on the “off” side of your grill. As a result, the indirect heat and packets of chips create a smokey perfection.

Place an internal thermometer in the thickest part of the breast. For an accurate temperature, be sure the probe is not touching a bone. Cook your turkey to 165-170 degrees internally. For example, Grill Girl grilled this 12 lb bird for about 3 hours.

Grill a Turkey, Step 4: Remove, Slice, and Serve.

Currently, this is our favorite way of cooking the Thanksgiving bird here at GrillPartsSearch.com. With browned, crispy skin, and a beautiful pink smoke ring in the meat, our crew polished off this turkey in no time.

Likewise, running out of space in the kitchen? Throw your potatoes or other vegetables on the grill with your turkey for a complete, grilled Thanksgiving meal.

In short, Get Grilling and Happy Thanksgiving!

Can You Smoke Meat On A Gas Grill?

You can still get the flavor and cook of a smoker even if you only have a gas grill on your deck!

To smoke meat on a gas grill, use the different heat zones in your grill. Heat zones are formed by the multiple burners in your grill. An easy way to know how many heat zones you have in your grill is to count the knobs that control the gas flow. This method is call Indirect Cooking. You will also need smoking chips and a high quality external thermometer.

How Can You Smoke Meat On A Gas Grill Shown on a Grill

Simply follow the steps below to smoke on your gas grill!

  1. Determine the Heat Zones on You Grill
    1. Count the number of knobs on your grill that turn on or off your burners.
    2. Use ONLY ONE knob in the “on” position.
    3. Remove the cooking grid directly over the burner that is on.
    4. All the other heat zones (knobs) will remain in the off position.
  2. Prepare Smoking Chips
    1. There are many varieties of wood chips you can use to add flavor to the smoke in your grill!
    2. You will want to soak the chips before using.
    3. Wrap them in aluminum foil and poke holes in the top.
    4. Place the foil packet of chips in the heat zone that is ON.
    5. There is heat dispersal covering your burner; this is usually a stainless steel heat plate, lava rocks or briquettes.
    6. Place the packet of smoking chips ON TOP of your heat dispersal.
    7. Keep an eye on the packet. If all the chips inside burn up, replace the packet with a new one.
    8. Check out this video I made showing the prep of wood chips: See Video
  3. Prepare the Meat (or other protein)
    1. Salt and season the protein.
    2. There are many seasoning rub mixtures you can purchase.
    3. You can easily find a recipe to make your own seasoning rub!
  4. Use Thermometer to Hone Grill Temperature
    1. It’s best not to trust the grill thermometer when you want to smoke meat on a gas grill.
    2. The probe of the thermometer should be in the airspace of your grill and not touching anything.
    3. Adjust the burner that is on to get your grill to the smoking zone, usually around 180- 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
  5. Smoke Meat!
    1. Place the cut of meat on the grids that are not above the “on” burner.
    2. Follow usual smoking instructions depending on your cut of meat or protein.
    3. Enjoy your dinner!
    4. If you’re a smoked meats connoisseur, check out these meat forks. They will change your life!

That’s all! If you’re wondering ‘can you smoke meat on a gas grill,’ hopefully now you know you can! It’s not even that difficult.

America’s Test Kitchen Rates Gas Grills Under $500

Hey Y’all! Grill Girl Here!

While I have my own favorite brand of gas grill (Modern Home Products or MHP), I know there are many out there to choose from! MHP also doesn’t currently have an option for a gas grill under $500.

America’s Test Kitchen is a company I love and trust for any recipe they provide because they thoroughly test recipes with different variations and cooking methods. When they came out with a video review of different gas grills under the $500 mark, I knew it would be worth watching.

I love the different ways they test the grills. Take note of the things they look at. Even if you don’t end up buying their recommendation, the way they test these grills and the points they make are really great! You should look at the heat dispersal, venting and general sturdiness of the grill. The BTU rating of a grill does not matter if all the heat will just go out too many vents!

What matters is a well made grill with a thick casting that can keep in heat and will cook your food evenly. Check out the video for even more details!

Hope this helps those of you looking for a new bbq this season!

Nexgrill Grillmaster Before & After

Grill Girl Here! Today we have a special post inspired by one of our customers!

He purchased a Grill Master  grill made by Nexgrill off a craigslist ad for just $30! It needed almost all new parts and so he came to us. He purchased brand new burners, heat plates, and cooking grids and is cooking with an essentially new system! That is an awesome way to save some money and get a great grill on your back porch – not to mention the fact he kept this grill out of a land fill.

Burners, heat plates, cooking grids   Used Grill Master Burners Heat Plates Cooking Grids Nexgrill

In the pictures above you can see the old parts. There are rusted burners, heat plates and the old cooking grids. One of the burners had a big hole in it, so our customer decided to replace all three at the same time. You can also see that the heat plates were very rusty and the holes were starting to get bigger. These heat plates probably weren’t protecting the burners very well. Whenever one of our customers buys a used grill, I always suggest getting a brand new cooking grid. Who wants to cook on top of someone else’s old food? Yuck.

Grillmaster by Nexgrill Tube Burner BMGKTB1  Grillmaster by Nexgrill Heat plate GMNGHP1

Here are the new burners and heat plates. Don’t they look so great? Both of these parts are stainless steel and when they heat up for the first time, they will get some discoloration from the heat. Still, the both parts are an exact fit, plus the heat plates are fully stainless instead of the original porcelain coated steel plates that were in the grill. This is an example of how you really can upgrade your grill by purchasing new parts from us!

Here is the final shot of the grill before it was used for the first time. Lookin’ Good!

Congratulations on your rebuilt grill! We love helping customers do projects like this. Thanks for sending us the pics!

Late Summer Grilling

Try a fresh piece of fish for your next grill meal!

Try a fresh piece of fish for your next grill meal!

Let’s admit – by the time we all get to August, we’re kind of done with the burgers and hot dogs. Even if you’re not totally sick of them, you should give it a break for just a few weeks because they will certainly become your staple again once football season starts back up.

For an alternative grilled dish, give a nice fresh fish a try! One of my favorites to throw on the grill is salmon. It has a pretty sturdy flesh which makes it much easier to maneuver on the grill.

The absolutely easiest way to cook fish on the grill is by putting it in an aluminum foil tray, smothering it with a garlic-herb butter and then just putting the tray directly onto the grill grids. You won’t get that pretty grill sear, but you are guaranteed that the fish won’t stick!

You can also use a cedar plank, just a sheet of aluminum, or put it directly on the cooking grid. Just make sure that if you do choose to put it on the grid, you oil it properly before placing the fish on it.  The safest way to oil a cooking grid is to put some oil on a paper towel and rub that thoroughly on the grid. Also, try to put your fish where the grid is the smoothest and the cleanest.

For even more tips, check out this video I made to answer a question from a customer!

That’s it for now! Do you have any tips on grilling fish? What’s your favorite thing to grill at the end of summer?

As Always- Happy Grilling!!

Manufacturer Highlight: Master Forge

Master Forge is a very popular brand of grill available at Lowe’s stores across the country. The Master Forge grill parts customers most often need when they call is either the burner (the tube where the flame comes out) or the heat plate (the metal shield that covers each burner) and sometimes both! We sell burners and heat plates made specifically for Master Forge grills in addition to many other parts.

Where do you find a model number on a Master Forge Grill?

What if you don’t have your model number? Here are a few places to look:

  • Most Master Forge grills have a product number assigned to them at Lowe’s. Sometimes we can find parts using that product number, but the best way is to find the model number exactly.
  • To begin, try looking on your original owner’s manual. The model number should be on the front page and will usually be listed on the bottom of each page.
  • If you don’t have your manual, that’s fine too! Look for a small metal plate or label with certification information on it, including your model number. These plates are usually on the back of each grill but sometimes can be found on the inside of the front doors.
  • Master Forge models can be number, letters, or a combination of the two! Here are a few examples of popular models: 2518-3, 2518LN-LPG, 288994, 3218LT, 678489, B10LG25, DG0576CC, E3518-LP, GCP-2601, GGP-2501, GGPL-2100CA, IGS-01015J, L3218, MFA350CNP, P3018, or SH3118B.
  • See the listing on our site: http://grillpartssearch.com/category/Parts_for_MASTER_FORGE_Gas_Grill.html

These grills are generally low-to-mid quality so if you intend to purchase one, do so with the expectation that you might have to replace parts in 2-5 years.

If you have any other questions about your Master Forge grill or any other brand of gas grill, give us a call! 877-244-0737

Hot Hot Hot!

Temperatures all around the country are HOT and getting Hotter!

Whether your means of cooling down is an air-conditioner that blasts 24/7 or an open window with a fan and a desperate hope, there’s absolutely no need to heat up your living space more than necessary!

That’s right folks, avoid those ovens and stove tops like the plague! You can cook SO many things on the grill using indirect heat and some roasting pans. Today, I’m dreaming of a nice crisp salad to end my day. You know me though, as the Grill Girl, I couldn’t have a salad without a lovely grilled chicken breast, or maybe some sliced grilled steak.

Doesn’t that sound amazing?

I don’t consider myself a chef, but here’s how I would build my dinner salad:

Get that grill going and throw on your choice of protein; how about grilled steak, chicken, salmon, or even shrimp? If using chicken, pound it out a bit so it’s nice and thin. It will take less time to cook. I like to add some citrus into my foods, so drizzle fresh-squeezed lime or lemon (your choice) along with some salt onto your meat before putting it on the grill. It is summertime after all!

Start your salad with a bed of romaine. In the hot summer months, nothing compares to the cool, watery crisp of romaine lettuce. Atop that, I would add some corn. If I have leftovers from a cookout I would definitely put that to use, or just open a can of sweet corn. Then throw on some chilled cherry tomatoes and sliced avocado. Add your meat and finish off with a sprinkle of Parmesan. Then, try making your own summer dressing instead of purchasing one from the store. Fresh is best! Here’s my all time favorite:

Cilantro Lime Dressing

The ratio you need is 2:1, oil to lime juice. I use olive oil, but you could also use canola. Then, add in some chopped cilantro, salt and pepper and fresh garlic! I blend in up and it gets pretty creamy. It’s very yummy and so easy!

Ok everyone, get outside to cook! Let the grill and the sun battle it out for who’s the hottest, while you get a great meal and run back inside to keep cool.

Happy Summer Grilling!

July Fourth Gas Grill Checklist

Are you grilling on a gas grill for the Fourth of July this weekend? Do this checklist TODAY:
1 – Remove and inspect the cooking grids and heat shields. Excessive rust or holes in these parts warrants replacing them!

Rust on the surface of your cooking grids, the area where you place your food, is gross at best. If you have a lot of rust or deterioration, get a new set! It’s amazing how a new cooking surface can affect your grilled food. Additionally, holes or excessive rust on the heat plates (heat shields, vap-o-riser bars, flavorizer bars, etc) can impact how the heat in your grill cooks your food. If you want an evenly heated grill, you need to have this system in good working order!

2 – Check the level of propane in your tank. Nothing dampens a party like running out of fuel.

You know you don’t want to have to leave your party to search for a new gas tank so you can finish cooking everyone’s food! If you have your grill hooked up to natural gas, of course this doesn’t apply to you. It’s easy to check the level of gas in your LP tank. Get some warm water and pour it over one side of the tank. The fuel inside will absorb the heat from the water, so when you run your hand down the side of the tank, it will feel warm and then cool. Wherever the tank starts feeling cool, that’s where your fuel level is. If it’s close to the bottom, go ahead and pick up an extra tank before your party!

3  – Before you put the other parts back in, visually inspect your burners (without removing them). Light them up using your ignition system. Are they burning evenly? Is the flame blue at the base?

You’ll want to make sure you don’t have any large holes or ares of flame coming out of your burners. If that is apparent, it is definitely time to replace the gas burners. More commonly, you will notice low areas of flame. If a visual inspection does not reveal any damage to the burners themselves, you may need to replace the regulator and hose that bring gas from the liquid propane tank to your grill. The regulator usually closes down over time so you will notice your grill heating up less and less. The good news is it’s an easy fix and definitely something we can get to you in a few days!

 

And if you have any questions at all, give us a call! We want to make sure your party is a success (but there is very little we can do the day before to help).
