An Ounce of Prevention

An Ounce of Prevention

Love to grill??  Who doesn’t!!

Assuring that you have a successful and safe barbecue every time takes just a few minutes.

Check for leaks!

Whenever changing or disconnecting an LP tank, perform a leak check when the tank is reconnected. A simple soapy water solution applied to the connection is all you need. With the control knobs off, turn on the tank. If bubbles form, DO NOT USE THE GRILL! There is a gas leak.

Brush the burner tubes!

Using a clean Weber stainless steel brush, brush across the portholes to clear all oxidation and debris from the ports.  Do not brush lengthwise, as that may push more into the holes. Blocked portholes can cause a back flash fire.

Check the cookbox!

Excess grease can collect on the sides of the cookbox over time. Grease is flammable! Use a plastic scraper to push all grease into the bottom tray (grease tray).

Clean out the bottom tray (grease tray)!

Use a plastic scraper to push all of the excess grease into the catch pan. Again, grease is flammable!

Empty the catch pan and toss the aluminum catch pan liner!

Replace the catch pan liner. Remember, grease is flammable!

If you have a charcoal model, be sure to empty the excess ashes and unburnt charcoal from the bowl and ash catcher before you begin.

Now you can grill safely and enjoy a great meal. Don’t let a lack of maintenance spoil your next get-together!
