Welcome. My name is ***** ***** would be glad to assist.
More information if possible please.
1. I assume this is a gas BBQ, correct?
Electrical is only used for lighting, rotisseries etc?
2. Does it trip the GFCI every single time it is lit?
Or just random?
3. How many receptacles on the same circuit?
4. Are other receptacles connected to this same GFCI, prior to the grill or after?
Let me know and we can continue,
