We BBQ lovers look forward to summertime since it’s the time when the gas BBQ goes out of storage and into action. Summer means having the best gas BBQs in everyone’s eyes. Before you start grilling, there are a few things you need to do.
Cleaning the BBQ
After you have put your gas grill in storage, it is essential to clean it. Get that scrubber and sponge, and clean any dirt and grease off your grill. Be sure to clean the exterior, the grill grates, the grease tray, the vapour bars, and the burners. The end result will be worth the effort!
Check the gas
Despite the fact that it is not always possible to know how much gas is left in your gas cylinder, if it feels light or empty, then you need to replace it. If you need a new gas cylinder, you can check to see if there is a supplier in your area. The last thing you want is to get the gas grill all set up only to realise there is no more gas.
Check the burners
When your gas BBQ grill has been stored for some time, it is important to test the burners to ensure they are still working. This includes testing the side-burner too. When you are happy that everything is working then it’s time to get cooking.
What to cook?
For the UK and Ireland, the obvious choice of food to cook on a gas BBQ is burgers, sausages, potatoes, and maybe steak. Why not try something new this summer? Visit our recipes section to expand your BBQ repertoire this summer.
