Let’s get your grill ready for the season.
1. Clean it Cold
First, make sure you turn off the fuel.
Wash the outside with warm soapy water or a stainless steel cleaner.
Clean the inside of the lid and clear and debris out of the firebox.
Clean the interior parts like grates and burner assemblies with a wire brush, pumice clock, or a stainless steel scrubber.
Completely dry your grill yo prevent rusting.
2. Clean It Hot (for the inside)
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 the burner assemblies too.
3. Inspect It
First turn off the fuel.
If your propane tank is empty, refill it at an authorized propane supplier. Consider buying a spare tank.
Inspect the burners and gas tunes to make sure they aren’t worn out, rusted or blocked by debris or spider webs.
If the gas tubes have worn spots replace them. If they are blocked, use a pipe cleaner, toothpick or paper clip to clear them.
Check the knobs and other controls to make sure they’re undamaged and working properly.
Tighten and loose screws or bolts.
4. Remember the Environment
Whenever possible, consider replacing old or broken parts on your grill before going out and buying a whole new grill.
