Why You Need to Clean Your Grill

The key to a long lasting grill is regular grill maintenance.  Ever November I like to winterize my grill.  This involves getting it cleaned up after a long summer of using it, checking for potential problems and getting it ready to be stored away until the warmer months.

Even if you live in a warmer climate or if you use your grill all year long, you will want to do some maintenance on the grill at least once per year or anytime you notice it getting grimy.
