6 Ways To Get Your BBQ Grill Ready For Spring
Spring is just around the corner, which means it's time to get your BBQ grill ready for outdoor cooking season! Whether you have a traditional charcoal or gas grill, or even an outdoor kitchen, there are a few key steps you should take to make sure you're ready to host the perfect backyard cookout.
Here are 6 ways to get your BBQ grill ready for spring:
1. Clean Your Grill
Start by giving your grill a thorough cleaning both inside and out. Because Crown Verity grills are made with 304 stainless steel, it's tough enough to withstand cleaning the entire unit with a power washer. Rent one from Bermuda Rentals to clean your grill with ease.
Cleaning Tip: Tough grease and build up on your griddle top? Simply heat and coat with a mixture of soda water and lemon juice, let it sit for a few minutes, wipe clean with a heavy duty sponge, and rinse. It will look good as new!

2. Check The Propane Tank
Make sure that your propane tank is full and that all of the hoses are in good condition as any leaks can be dangerous. The fuel lines may become dried out and brittle over time, so it's always a good idea to inspect them before you fire up the grill for the first time after winter. If necessary, replace any worn or broken hoses to ensure safety and proper grilling performance.
If you use a charcoal grill, stock up on fresh charcoal briquettes now so you're ready when it's time to fire up the grill.
3. Inspect The Burners
Check the burner tubes for any obstructions, such as spider webs or insects that may have taken up residence in your grill during the winter months. Remove any blockages and test each individual burner to make sure they light properly. If you detect a leaky valve, replace it immediately.
4. Test Your Thermometers
Make sure your thermometers are functioning properly by checking the accuracy of the temperature readings with an oven thermometer placed inside your closed BBQ grill. This will ensure you know exactly how hot the internal cooking temperature is, which is key for perfect grilling results every time. Too much heat can lead to burnt or dried out food and too little heat can cause undercooked meats that could contain bacteria and make family and friends sick. So, make sure your thermometers are working properly before you start grilling this spring.
5. Test The Grease Tray
Make sure the grease tray is properly in place and test to make sure it catches all of the drippings from the food you cook on your grill. This will help prevent flare-ups and keep your outdoor kitchen clean and safe.
Crown Verity Tip: Always keep a 1/4 inch of water in the grease tray at all times while using your Crown Verity Grill. Not only does it keep your food moist and avoids flare ups, it also allows for easy cleanup.
6. Check The Fire Extinguisher
Finally, inspect and test your fire extinguisher and make sure it's in good condition. This is especially important if you have a gas or outdoor kitchen grill.
Now that your BBQ grill is ready for spring, get out there and start enjoying all the delicious outdoor cooking of the season. Fire up that grill and get cookin'! The spring weather is perfect for whipping up some tasty BBQ outdoors. Burgers, hot dogs, chicken, veggies—the possibilities are endless. So grab your tongs and spices and get outside to take advantage of the season. Happy grilling!
