1 - Safety first!  Check the hoses from your fuel source to the burners.  Replace torn or worn hoses and clean up dirt, grime, and corrosion

(not applicable if you use coal)

2 - Time for a quick cleaning.  Clean the grates, burners (if you have gas), the bowl (if you use coal) and even give those utensils a good cleaning as well.

3 - Some grills have grease traps . . . don't forget to clean that out

4 - Give it a test run.  If you have gas, light it us and let it burn for a few minutes

Enjoy your grill for the season!
