BBQ Maintenance

Duff Dixon, owner of Ontario Gas BBQ discusses how to maintain and clean your barbecue to ensure your barbecue is kept in tip top shape. All barbecues need to be cleaned at least annually and ideally twice a year for those who barbecue often.

To start the BBQ maintenance make sure the grill of the barbecue is cleaned often, as that is where the surface of your food will go, but more importantly the parts underneath the grill where grease can build up and cause performance and safety issues. All barbecues have a grease drainage system which is usually a grease tray underneath the barbecue which should be cleaned regularly as too much build up could potentially cause a grease fire.

You also want to remove the grease from the burners and heat plates underneath the grill as they will become clogged over time and impact the cooking performance of your barbecue. Cleaning them with a wire brush should remove most of the build-up.

Check your ignition system once in a while as food can sometimes get stuck in it causing issues with it’s performance and if you have a propane or natural gas hose, inspect it periodically to make sure it doesn’t develop any cracks.
