If you haven't noticed, it's getting rather warm out there, and I can imagine any number of you are eyeing you grill. Your timing is perfect, because grilling season is upon us. Master Griller Jerry Pellegrino has these tips for getting ready for the grilling season.
- Hose down the grill and give it a good general scrubbing. You'd be surprised how many cobwebs and bird nests can turn up!
- Take the grill apart so that you can get to the inner portions. Use a brush and soapy water to clear up any pockets of congealed grease that built up. Rinse with the hose.
- Scrub the grilling irons themselves with a stiff wire brush and soapy water. For really caked on residue, place the grill on newspaper, and spray on an oven cleaner. Wear gloves, because that stuff if highly caustic.
- If you have a gas grill, get a toothpick and clean out each of the little holes along the tubes. You'll want a nice even flame in the coming months, and clogged up holes will not allow that.
- Refurbish or replace your barbecue tools. Some of them may have a long lifespan, but most don't survive a year.
- And finally, for you well worn Weber, get a can of black semi-gloss spray paint, and give it a new coat, after you scrape off any rust or loose paint.
