Grill Check time

Summer is usually a very busy time for the grill.  Now is a good time to take an extra hour to clean and check for any issues.  If you have a gas grill, make sure to clean under the burners.  That area can accumulate grease and debris that can flare up.  Also check your gas lines, regulators and tanks.  If you see any cracks or signs of wear in your gas lines, it is time to replace them.

The surface of the grill can be cleaned with oven cleaner if needed. But you must rinse it at least three times and get any residue off the grill or your first food will be ruined.  Once the grill is cleaned, crank it up and let it get hot to burn off any residue that you may have missed. Do this for any grill - gas or charcoal or wood fired.

Lastly, do not forget the inside of the cover. My grill also serves as a smoker so the inside will not get shiny, but I can make sure that it is free of any combustible material.

If you do this at least once a year your grill will last longer and be safer.  Don't forget to clean the outside too.
