Ready, Set, Grill!

In Part 1 of this month’s newsletter, we will give you tips on getting your grill ready for the season ….

Tip 1.

Clean Your Grill (Cold Method)

  1. First, make sure you turn off the fuel.
  2. Wash the exterior of the grill with warm, soapy water or a stainless steel cleaner.
  3. Clean the inside of the lid and vacuum any debris out of the firebox.
  4. Clean the interior parts like grills and burner assemblies with a wire brush, pumice block, or stainless steel scrubber.
  5. Completely dry your grill to prevent rusting.

Tip 2.

Clean Your Grill (Hot Method)

  1. Watch our Facebook Live where Bill goes through the steps of a hot cleaning. Softening and burning off the buildup on your grates is easier this way. Once cooled, you can use a wire brush to scrub burner assemblies too.

Tip 3.

Inspect Your Grill

  1. First, make sure you turn off the fuel.
  2. If your propane tank is empty, refill it at an authorized propane supplier.
  3. Inspect the burners and their gas tubes to make sure they aren’t worn out, rusty or blocked by debris or spider webs.
  4. If the gas tubes have worn spots, replace them. If they are blocked, use a pipe cleaner, toothpick or paper clip to clear them.
  5. Check the knobs and other controls to make sure they’re undamaged and working properly.
  6. Tighten any loose screws or bolts.

Remember ….

  • Whenever possible, consider replacing old or broken parts on your grill before going out and buying a whole new grill. 
  • Nearly every part of your grill will have a replacement part you can buy and replacement parts are cheaper.
