For most, the spring cleaning means washing the windows, wiping down the cabinets and giving the oven a deep clean, but for the Kings and Queens of the grill spring cleaning means tuning up the most important cooking tool – the barbecue. Don’t enter BBQ season without showing your grill a little love and care. Here are our 5 quick, easy and affordable steps to getting your barbecue ready for grilling season.
- Stainless-Steel Brush
- Putty Knife
- Dish Soap
Step 1: Burn off any residue from last season. Turn your grill on high, close the lid and leave it to burn off the mess for 10-15 minutes.
Step 2: Give the grates a good scrub. Remove the charred residue with a stainless-steel brush. If the grates are greasy, remove them, wipe them down with a soapy sponge, rinse, and towel-dry.
Step 3: Tackle the burners. Use a putty knife to scrape off any grease and clean the burners with the stainless-steel brush. Look closely at whether the gas jets are clogged. If so, use the tip of a wire hanger to poke through the centre of each one. If necessary, scrub the burners with soapy water, rinse them off and towel-dry. Remove the burners for the next step.
Step 4: Hit the walls. Scrape the walls of your barbecue with the putty knife. If necessary, wipe the walls with soapy water.
Step 5: Final Inspection. Check for leaks and cracks in your gas hose, and inspect your control knobs, thermometers, and handles. Replace any loose or broken parts to keep your grill in good shape all summer long!
