Start off BBQ Season
Chances are your barbecue has been hibernating since Fall. Follow these 3 tips before you get grilling!
Start the grilling season off with a complete top-to-bottom scrubbing. Start by removing the grill grates and wiping down the interior of the grill with a paper towel or mildly abrasive sponge in order to remove any built-up grease and residue. Don't forget to clean out the grease trap.
Rusty grill grates are one the most common issues when a grill sits unused for an extended period of time.
Start by scrubbing the grates aggressively with a wire-bristled brush or S.O.S pad to remove the rust particles. Once the grill is completely clean of rust spots, season the grate well with oil.
Before you start cooking, give your barbecue a quick safety check. Specifically, if you have a gas grill, check the hose from your propane to your burners and make sure it’s intact and clean. If everything looks good, turn on your grill, light it up, and let it burn for a few minutes. Watch it to make sure all the burners are firing and there are no leaks.
