My answer differs from the previous expert by way of safety and convenience.

An easier and safer way is to just hold down the pilot button until you can smell the propane. In this case, the pilot button acts as a bleeder valve and you don't have to worry about unions and cutoffs. Also, this takes zero tools and you won't have to worry if you have retightened the union properly when you're done.

If you need additional assistance with this, just let me know!
