Clean the burner
The burner and gas tubes are the most important part of the grill. They ensure that your temperature is just right for everything from smoking to searing. Keeping them clean will help you cook anything on the grill to perfection. Burner maintenance should be done at the start and end of the season.
The cleaning process will be the same both times. Start by turning off the propane tank and removing the cooking grates. Detach the tubes and burner, taking care not to damage any components. The tubes can be cleaned with warm, soapy water, and the burner can be wiped with a damp microfibre cloth. Towel dry the burner ports and clean out any remaining residue with a toothpick. Set the burner and the tubes aside until you are finished cleaning the rest of the grill.
