The chef in charge of grilling a meat or fish dish can do a better job, when using a clean grill. A dirty grill can damage the meal that has been prepared by a skilled chef. It can introduce unpleasant flavors into the grilled food. In addition, dirt and grease can clog certain channels, thus triggering corrosion of certain components, within the dirty outdoor appliance. Sometimes, too, a greasy spot can increase the chances for a flare-up.
Still, a grill-cleaning job should not be done at the last minute. In fact, such a job should not even be attempted until the gas has been turned off or the stored propane has been redirected in some fashion. Then the grill is almost ready to undergo a thorough cleaning.The next pre-cleaning step involves noting the nature of the ground under the grill’s legs. Ideally, those legs do not rest on a cement surface. The chemicals used for cleaning grills can stain cement.

Check the knobs and buttons; make sure that each of them can carry out its intended function. Check the grill’s batteries and ignition switch. Find and buy replacement parts, if necessary.
