More people than ever are gathering at their grills. As we shift gears back to home, Spring is a time for unpacking the outdoor grill. Since so many of us are home-bound, more people than ever are joining the annual ritual of firing up their grills for making delicious food.
If your grill and your grilling game has gone cold in hibernation, here are some hot tips to get you taming the flames. Each day for the next 30 days we’ll feature a recipe, grate technique or grate griller to inspire your inner grillmaster.
Play It Safe
Especially with gas grills, check and clear the grease trap since it’s a common source of grill fires. Check that gas lines and burners are clear and burning properly. Remove cooking grates and flame tents and light the grill to observe burner tubes. A light brushing can unclog burners easily.
Clean It Up
After you’ve cleaned the garage and basement, get that grill sparkling and ready to do some heavy lifting. For pellet and charcoal grills you’ll want to clean out the dust and debris that’s settled in the bottom (a shop vac is perfect for that), and then add fresh fuel. For gas grills, there’s a little more work involved. Check out our blog here about the ins and outs of getting that gasser ready for summer.
Obsessive grillers likely have a tool pile that could use weeding and sorting out. Who knows what you will find? And if you get to the bottom of the pile and need to freshen up your stash, GrillGrate has the latest and greatest here.
