Summer is in full swing, which means your grill is working overtime. Outside of a deep clean that you should do every few months, these 3 steps will help keep your grill in great shape:
Check for propane leaks. This should be done at least once a month. To ensure your gas line and connectors aren’t leaking, run a little soapy water along the gas line and connectors. You will know there is a leak if bubbles form. Tighten the connection and if bubbles still persist, the gas line may need to be replaced.
Cover your grill. It seems obvious, but keeping your grill covered when it is not in use is very important. You may have to buy your cover separately from your grill, but it is worth the investment to ensure your grill doesn’t rust or become dirtier than it should.
Regularly clean your grill. If you’re grilling, a lot spot cleaning your grill after each use is imperative. Just simply brushing the grates and wiping down the exterior of the grill can go along way to ensure your grill is performing at its best. Once a week you should also turn your grill on high for 15 minutes. Doing so will help burn off excess gunk that can build up a lot quicker than most people think.
If you haven’t cleaned your grill in a few months, here is some great advice on how to perform a deep clean from the Art of Manliness: How to Clean and Maintain a Gas Grill. If you are in a rush you can have your grill clean in just 15 minutes with this Grill Checklist from Real Simple.
Grill maintenance doesn’t take a lot of effort and really goes a long way to make sure you are enjoying your grill and not buying a new one anytime soon.
