THUNDER BAY – Living – Ah, nothing beats the smell of a sizzling steak on the barbecue! But before you fire up your propane grill and get your meat on, there are a few things you should do to make sure your grill is in top shape:

  1. Give it a good cleaning: Over the winter months, your grill may have accumulated dust, dirt, and even some critters. Before you start grilling, give it a good cleaning. Remove any debris or cobwebs, and scrub the grates with a grill brush to get rid of any leftover food or grease.
  2. Check for gas leaks: Propane grills can be dangerous if there are any gas leaks. Before turning on the gas, check all the hoses and connections for any signs of wear and tear or leaks. If you detect any leaks, replace the damaged parts before using the grill.
  3. Make sure the igniter works: It’s important to make sure the igniter on your propane grill is working properly. Test it out before you start grilling to make sure the flame ignites easily.
  4. Check the propane tank: Make sure your propane tank is properly connected and has enough fuel for your grilling session. If you’re unsure how much propane is left, weigh the tank or use a propane gauge.
  5. Preheat the grill: To ensure your food cooks evenly, preheat your grill before placing your meat on the grates. Let it heat up for 10-15 minutes, and then brush the grates with oil to prevent sticking.

By following these simple steps, you’ll be ready to grill the perfect steak and enjoy the delicious taste of outdoor cooking!
