Your grill is probably a branded name, of which the durability is superior to others. But regardless, maintenance is strongly needed.

Weber has been known as the most durable grill on the market. It is easy to clean and rust-proof. But just in case you find some damages on your grill, Weber replacement parts are very easy to find online. You can order them, and your grill night plan will not be disturbed.

Cleaning grillThere are two types of grill, which are gas and charcoal. Gas leaves relatively minor debris on the grill if compared to charcoal. To clean the grill, you just need a damp cloth and liquid cleaners, like G-Clean, Mr. Clean, and Easy Off.

Each time you heat up your grill, leave it for awhile so that the sticky debris can burn into ashes. Then clean the charcoal box with a steel brush. Or, if yours is a gas grill, cleaning the grill bars is enough.

Covering your grill
