One of the many perks of living in a tropical climate such as Orlando, Florida is that grilling season can be year-round. If you’re using your Orlando outdoor grill a few times or even once a week for most of the year, taking steps to maintain its condition will extend the longevity of your grill. Routine maintenance of your grill is simple enough, but if your grill needs a bit more TLC, you can find cleaning tips, here. Today, we will be discussing regular maintenance that can be done monthly or weekly, depending on how hard you like to play.
Maintaining Your Orlando Outdoor Grill
Want to keep your Orlando outdoor grill working properly all summer long? Follow these simple steps to maintain your grill:
- Burn off the Grease – This step, while not necessary, will save you a lot of time and labor. A good practice is to do this after every time you grill.
- Check for Propane Leaks – If you can’t remember the last time you checked your Orlando outdoor grill for propane leaks, it’s time to do so. Simply run soapy water along the gas line and connections with the propane turned on and look for any bubbling. Bubbles indicate a leak. This is can be due to either a loose connection or you may need to replace the line.
- Keep Your Grill Covered – Protecting your grill from the elements is an important component in keeping your grill well maintained. Invest in a top-notch cover for your grill, especially if you plan on keeping it outside. Don’t have a cover for your grill? Paradise Grills carries top of the line grill covers for all their professional-grade stainless steel grills.
- Clean Regularly – Every Orlando outdoor grill should be deep cleaned at least twice a year (more if you grill on the regular). Outdoor grills need to be spot cleaned as well, after every use. This will help to maintain the life of your grill and make it easier for you to clean when you do need to deep clean it. All you need to do after each use is wipe the outside with Windex or a stainless steel cleaner, brush the grates with a grill brush, and just how you started the process, burn off the grease, and any chunks. You’ll be glad you did.
