Summer is in full swing! Rather than turning on the oven and heating up your home, get the grill ready and use this summer to perfect your skills! Invite friends and family over and enjoy being this summer’s grill master by trying some new recipes!
Before starting your grill, it is a good idea to make sure it is ready to go so here are a few tips:
CLEAN THE INSIDE
Taking the grates out of the grill and scrubbing them down with a wire brush and water can make a big difference in sprucing up the look of the grill and ensures that your food is being cooked on a clean surface.
GET RID OF THE GREASE
It is easy to forget about the grease trap located under the grill. It is important to wipe out this grease from last season because build-up can lead to overheating. Try lining the trap with aluminum foil to make the cleaning process easier!
CHECK YOUR PROPANE
Most grills are fueled by propane, so after it is cleaned, check your propane tank to be sure you have a sufficient supply. Also make sure the hose that connects to your propane is attached and cleaned off.
