Warm weather means the start of grilling season.

Does this mean it’s time to run to the store for a new grill or just put in a call to the repairman?

Here are some common part of your grill that you might have problems with.

Gas Grill Clean Setting

Most gas grills come with a cleaning option on the setting knobs. If you have a clean setting on your gas grill, you can use it to burn off any excess grease. While it’s a great tool to burn off excess grease, it’s not going to get your grill truly clean. For that, you’ll need a little elbow grease. Read more here.

Grills do not last forever and rust is a bitter enemy. Our BBQ Grill cleaning service helps to prevent future corrosion. Most customers do not consider their grills as disposable. Whatever fuel you use creates carbon buildup. The buildup ends up clogging the burners. Removing the grease and grime from the burners ensures an even flame and improves the performance of your grill (and your grilling).

How to Save Energy and Money by Grilling

Grilling is, of course, fun and seasonal—one of the joys of summer. But by doing it properly, you can also decrease your energy consumptions—and save money.

Tips for Maximizing Energy

Whether you’re using gas or charcoal, there are a few things you can do for each type of energy source to maximize its use.

  • Get the food ready. To make sure you’re not letting the grill sit and warm up—and thus wasting energy—don’t start the grill until you have the food ready to put on it. Once you do, you’re ready to start the grill.
  • Shorten the warm-up time. One of the easiest ways to waste energy when grilling is to let the grill heat up for too long. This is more problematic for charcoal, which takes time to heat up and catch fire. In general though, allowing twenty minutes for the coals to light, until they’re all burning, is an ample amount of time. For gas grills, that warm-up time might be as short as 5 minutes.
