Clogged venturis will do this and you may need the flexible brush on a spring to clear the spiders, webs, bees or whatever out, have had this a few times with the weird flashbacks, and its a great overall safety measure for gas BBQ's...

It's usually under the panel where the control valves are. Another way to find them is to trace back from the burner to where the gas goes into the burner. That's where the venturi is. Usually.

You may have to go back to the store and ask about it if you don't have the instruction booklet.

i had the same problem once tanis, i moved my grill and one of the venturi tubes (the bent hoses that are under the the panel that connect the dials or valves to the underside of the burners) came off the inputs to the burners, so it was spewing gas underneath. unless you're good at assembling things and have the instructions for the grill, i wouldn't try to re-attach them. they have to be put on the burner spigots correctly, and then adjusted for a good flame. ask the local propane guy (i think his name is hank hill) if he makes repairs and adjustments on grills. be careful, you could end up a crispy critter if you do something wrong...
