If you operate your grill, then deprive the fire of oxygen by closing the top and bottom air vents, a sudden surge of flame called a “flashback*’ can occur if you suddenly open the dome of the grill. This occurs due to the sudden exposure to oxygen, which causes a brief but intense amount of white heat.
If you have been cooking at temperatures above 300°F, be very careful when opening the dome. First raise the dome about 3cm or 5cm and pause to hold it before raising the dome completely. This will allow the sudden rush of oxygen to bum safely inside and not as a flashback which could startle you and possibly cause injury.
