Tips to Prep Your Grill for the Winter Season
The following tips will help you prepare your grill for winter and make sure its ready for spring.
- Disconnect your propane tank, if you have one, and then disassemble every part of your grill.
- Use warm soapy water to remove the sticky soot, grease, and food articles which have built up. Rinse parts with tap water. Use a nylon pad to scrub the grates and get rid of stubborn grease. Make sure that the grates are completely dry to prevent rusting.
- For gas grills, use a piece of wire to clean out the burners and poking the gas jets to remove any barrier.
- Make note of any part that is rusted through and is in need of replacement before grill season starts next year.
With the shell and all the components clean, reassemble the grill, being sure that all gas connections are made properly and are leak free.
- Fire up the grill for about 40 minutes to make sure that it is completely dry.
- Use a thin film of cooking oil spray on all the metal parts of the grill as additional security from build-up of moisture during winter storage.
- Cover your grill and store it in your garage, shed or other location where it is sheltered from the elements. Leaving your unit outdoors can expose it to harmful elements which could damage it beyond repair.
- Never store propane tanks in an enclosed area. Keep the tank in a well ventilated area, protected from the weather.
