Tips to Choose the Right Grill and Maintain Grill Cover

For many people, the backyard barbecue is an integral part of summer—or any time of year. And though you may take great care in selecting and preparing the foods you serve, the success of your meal often comes down to the quality of your grill.


One of the top grill buying questions you will consider when researching a new grill is price. How much do you want to spend? How much can you afford? Think about what you are comfortable spending on a grill and figure out which grills fall into that range. Remember though: you get what you pay for.

How often will I use my grill? If you only plan on grilling hot dogs and hamburgers on occasion, there’s no need to spring for an expensive grill. Only get a grill that will closely fit your specific grilling needs.

The material of your barbecue grill

Barbecue grills these days are made from either stainless steel, cast iron, or aluminum. Again, each of these has their own set of advantages and disadvantages.

Stainless steel outdoor grills, for instance, are far easier to clean and less prone to rust. However, they can be very expensive. Cast iron grills are more economical and not easily prone to dents. But they are the most susceptible to rusting, especially if you live in a region where you experience a high amount of moisture.

If you’re working on a rather tight budget, barbecue grills made from aluminum steel is a really good option because it gives you the best of both worlds, so to speak. They are easier to clean and durable but still within a reasonable price range.

Fuel choice

If there is one thing that has fired up a lot of debate when it comes to choosing a barbecue grill, it is the type of fuel that you use.

Generally speaking, there are two types of fuel used in an outdoor grill: charcoal and gas.

Barbecue purists tend to favor using charcoal for their barbecue grill because they allow you to cook at higher temperatures, so you really get that crisp, seared crusts in your meat with those really pretty grill marks. Charcoal grills also give your meat more of that smoky flavor.

Gas grills, on the other hand, are not as messy to use as compared to charcoal grills. They are also a lot quicker to fire up and get things grilling. More important, the temperature in gas grills is more consistent, which is important if you need to grill meats for long periods of time.


Even those grill covers with the best quality can still get damaged if not maintained properly. They may look like a simple cloth but it needs more than just a quick wipe. They are designed for outdoor use so they are exposed to different types of harsh elements or weather that might ruin its quality.​

Here are some ways to maintain the quality of your grill cover.​

Wash it every now and then to scrub off all the grease, dust, dirt, mold, mildew and any other damaging elements. But don’t scrub too harshly.

If your barbecue grill is clean and so is your grill cover. Dirty utensils and leftovers might attract pests that can contaminate both your grill and cover. You should make sure to keep your equipment clean at all times to avoid these damages

You should use the right and mild cleaning products. Harsh chemical sprayers might damage the quality of your cover.

It is much better to wash your cover by hand and not in a washing machine. Machine washing might destroy your grill cover.
