      I think it might depend on the grill. If it’s a gas grill then it would be no different. Maybe they mean a charcoal grill.

      You couldn’t control the temp on a charcoal grill in order to shut it off at the right time. For safety reasons, they wouldn’t want people carrying a heavy and very HOT canner to a nearby picknic or other outside table for cooling.

      I have reciently started learning how to can. I have a glass top
      stove, so it takes much longer for the water to boil. A friend
      suggested doing it on the grill too on the side burner.

      I can’t see
      why it wouldn’t work. However, I just bought a pressure canner for
      those things you can’t can with the water bath method and the
      instructions say to never do it outside on a grill. I can’t imagine
      why.

      It’s no different IMO than a gas stove. Any thoughts??? I may
      just try it anyway one day and see what happens.
