Top Tips for Grilling Maintenance

After the bbq is before the bbg, that’s clear. But what happens to the grill during the dormant phase? Dän has a few tips for you on how to keep your grill fully functional.

What to Consider

Here are the most important tips:

TIP 1

When grilling, smear / spray the grates with grease or oil. This prevents from too much meat sticking to the grill and thus sticking to the grill.

TIP 2

After grilling, clean the grill with a grill brush (made of brass) while the grill is still warm.

TIP 3

For a gas grill, heat up shortly before the next use, this way any grease or food residue is burned off.

TIP 4

For a charcoal grill, remove the ash residue before using it again.

TIP 5

I do not believe in covers. Because it always creates condensation and that causes in the end for rust.

It's better to park the barbecue under an open shelter or in a garden shed.

TIP 6

To avoid the grill from rusting over the winter, oil the metal parts. This protects against corrosion.

Dän's opinion

"Cleaning the barbecue - that's a philosophy. What I can say for sure is that I usually clean the grills, especially shortly before use. And for this cleaning a brass brush and the heat of the embers are enough."
