In order to maintain your status in the neighborhood as a grill master, it is imperative that you take the time to care for your grill. If you take the time to regularly clean and do routine check ups on your grill, it will treat you with respect for the years and cookouts to come.
How to Maintain Your Grill
1. Routinely check for propane leaks. Every few weeks you'll want to run some soapy water along the gas line and its connections. When bubbles form, that indicates that there is a leak. You'll need to replace the line or tighten the connections.
2. Cover your grill. Invest the money to protect your grill from the elements. This will avoid the natural wear and tear that comes with exposure to rain, wind, etc.
3. Clean it regularly. It's important to spot clean after every use. Use your brush to scrape down the grates of debris. You can also turn the grill up to high for 15 minutes once a week or so to burn off some of the excess gunk. Doing this ensures that grime doesn’t build up too much, which can happen quicker than you expect it to.
