Warm weather is finally upon us, and now is the time to get your grill ready for use. After a long winter of sitting indoors, there are a few steps that need to be taken to ensure that your grill is safe for preparing food.
Do A Thorough Check
You need to look your grill over before putting it to use. Ensure that all of the pieces are there and look out for any rust or broken down parts. If certain areas are in too bad of shape, you will want to replace these before getting any type of grilling started. Look for signs of build-up, as well, and definitely check your hose to ensure that it is not blocked up or damaged. If it is in bad shape, replace it, as the hose can fairly easily ignite, putting you and any house guests in serious danger.
After sitting for months, it is likely that your grill will need a good cleaning. Make sure any dust or excess debris is scrubbed off and that you are addressing every part of the grill. Also, check out the grease trap for anything that may have been left behind from last season. If everything is clean, kicking off that first grilled meal of the year will be a lot easier and the food will turn out much better.
Test It Out
By turning your grill on and checking everything out before starting any meal planning, you can ensure that everything will be good to go once you actually need to cook. Make sure all of the burners are functioning properly and check for any leaks or signs of damage. Once you know that it is running well, start inviting people over and get those summer parties started!
