Clean and Fix it Up
Since you’re done grilling for awhile, it’s a good idea to give your grill a thorough cleaning, inside and out. Start by cleaning the grates with a wire brush. Residue that is caked-on can be difficult to remove even after a few days — so imagine what a few months of cold weather can do. It is important to be as thorough as possible while cleaning your grill inside and out. One helpful and money saving method is to use baking soda and water to remove caked-on residue. Make sure you oil your grill grates and metal parts with vegetable oil once your done to prevent rust if you plan on leaving your grill outside.
Additionally, this is a great opportunity for you to fix any lingering issues that you might have been putting off, such as a broken handle or stuck wheel. Better to fix it now, then wait until later when you might need to use your grill!
Safely Store Your Propane Tank
Although propane can be great for grilling, it can present a safety hazard if it is not stored properly. First, detach the propane tank from the grill. Then find a safe place to properly store your propane tank, such as a garage or basement. This a good opportunity to take the time to inspect the tank for signs of rust damage. If there’s rust, it may be time for a new propane tank!
