hi kevin
i just bought the weber for the first time i love grilling i bought the grill like two weeks ago and everywhere i went they told me to get the weber i was watching some of our videos they are great by the way, anyways, i just wanted some basic maitnence tips between each bbq that i make when and how and what exactly need to be cleaned and how often?
second question is the other day i was griling outside when it started to pour i moved it undera little awning and proceeded to try and shut it down...what kind of action should i have taken?

Yeruchem,
Between cooks I like to make sure the outside looks clean which is why I use stainless steel polish and cleaner. I also use Weber’s exterior cleaner to keep all non stainless and non food contact areas clean. I make sure every time the grates are clean and I also empty the grease tray every 5-6 cooks. I make sure the bottom tray is clean of debris and grease on the same 5-6 cooks. When it rains make sure you do not put it under an awning because it creates a safety issue. Keep the questions coming here or on Facebook and Twitter at Kevin Kolman’s Backyard and always Happy Grilling and Cleaning!!

Why not have a video on performing the annual maintenance of cleaning the burner tubes? I suspect I have spider webs that are preventing some burners from igniting.

That would be much more useful.

Hi Jay,
I appreciate the feedback and will share it with our team. I would suspect it’s not spider webs in your burners, but they might be clogged with debris. If a burner is only lighting half way, that is a good indicator of clogged burner ports. Try using a Weber stainless steel grill brush to clean them out.

Happy Grilling!
