Cleaning your BBQ

If you’ve not used your BBQ over the winter, chances are it will require a clean before you start cooking up a storm in summer. Grills/Griddles/internal Parts The most important thing to do before you start cleaning is to disconnect the gas bottle if your BBQ is a gas model. Once this is disconnected, you can remove all internal parts such as grills, griddles, flavourizer bars, lava rock racks, etc. The grills, griddles and flavourizer bars can be washed indoors with hot soapy water and left to dry. We would recommend replacing your lava rocks every year, depending on how often you use your BBQ. Once all internal parts are clean , then wipes down the sides and lid with warm soapy water. Any old charcoal and ashes should be removed, you can use an old dustpan and brush to remove these. Remove the drip tray and clean this. We […]

When it comes to sharpening a chain at home, some a put off as they think it can be too difficult.
