Tips to Clean Barbecue Grill: How to Get Ready For The Season

Spring is here and it’s almost time to enjoy fun and lazy weekends with family and friends in your backyard, barbecuing for your loved ones. But are you ready with all your barbecue equipment and grill? If not, it’s time to get them out this weekend and clean them up before you invite friends over.

Here are few steps to help you get your barbecue grill ready for the season:

Clean the burner and tubes.
Make sure the propane tank is turned off. Remove the briquettes and cooking grates, and carefully detach the gas tubes and burner. Clean the tubes with warm, soapy water and towel dry. Wipe the burner clean with a damp cloth. Towel dry the gas ports on the burner.

Wash the grill.
First, cover the gas valves with aluminum foil to protect the connections from corrosion. Wash the grill’s interior and exterior surfaces with a long-handled stiff-wire grill brush and warm, soapy water. Rinse thoroughly and towel dry, then reattach the gas tubes and burners.

Clean the cooking grates.
Cool the grill after burning off the grease. Remove the briquettes and cooking grates and scrub the grates with a long-handled stiff-wire grill brush and warm, soapy water. Towel dry, then replace, along with the briquettes.

Stock fuel levels.
Check and replenish your propane or natural gas supply as necessary. Corroding and rusted tanks should be recycled.
And with these easy steps, you are ready for this season’s fun barbecue outings with family and friends.
