BBQ repair can be quite expensive due to the many small and detailed parts required to make a BBQ grill work. We have found that with some extra care and guidelines, homeowners can significantly reduce the repairs on the BBQ’s year after year.
- To minimize flare-ups, change your lava rock once a season or when saturated with barbecue drippings. You can also switch to using ceramic or porcelain briquettes which are less porous and can be baked clean by turning them over and heating.
- To cook chicken and pork or for other slow cooking, turn one side of the grill on low and cook the barbecue on opposite side of warm rack for an indirect method of cooking.
- You can help protect your grill body from the weather and minimize white spots and oxidation by coating the outside of the grill with a light coating of vegetable oil applied with a paper towel while cool.
- To help discourage squirrels and other critters from chewing and damaging the gas supply hose from your tank in their search for barbecue drippings, occasionally wipe the hose down with an ammonia and water cleaner.
