I spent some time this past week to clean up my backyard deck and inspect my outdoor grill. It inspired me to share a few tips to get your season started off right for this upcoming Memorial Day Weekend.
Hopefully, your grill is in great shape, and it only needs a thorough brushing and wipe down. But if you own a gas grill, don’t overlook your gas connections and regulator. They can become corroded or clogged with debris over the winter, which will not only make your flames burn unevenly but can become a dangerous situation when the ignition finally lights.
Second, consider replacing your grill grates if they have become severely pitted or rusted. While they might still hold up for another season, old, pitted grates just love to grab onto your foods, making it nearly impossible to release your grilled foods without shredding and making them unappealing and unattractive. Grilling grates are relatively inexpensive and a good investment considering you won’t be shredding that chicken breast or ruining that ten-dollar steak.
Up next is the obvious: be certain you have at least a half-tank of propane available for your first use and a full can of non-stick vegetable spray, which is invaluable to prevent sticking.
