You’re thinking about buying a new BBQ, but you are worried that it will break down or get damaged. You may have recently purchased a barbecue and now want to make the most of it. This guide will show you how to protect your barbecue throughout the year.

Shelter, Weather, and Storage

Is it necessary to bring in your barbecue during the winter or rainy season? Not necessarily. It’s not required.

It is best to store a small barbecue in your garage or shed if it can be moved. They are usually cheaper but not as durable. They may be prone to being damaged by wind or rain.

Storing Fuel

Gas canisters should be stored properly if your BBQ is a hybrid or a gas. Store them upright in a garage or shed. Do not store them inside. If possible, store the tanks outdoors (especially if they are propane), on concrete, and away from drains, building entrances, exits, etc.

Store away from potential flames such as cigarettes and in an area that is well-ventilated. You should keep any flammable materials away from gas canisters.


Consider barbecue covers to protect your larger machine if you do not have enough space. You may find that your chosen model has its cover. The cost of a cover is usually between PS30 and PS60, but it can be more expensive depending on the machine’s size.

You can protect your vehicle from the elements, including wind, rain, UV light, and animal damage, like scratches and birdpoop, by using a cover.

Make sure to clean your barbecue before covering it, especially if you plan on doing so for an extended period.


You may have been too busy entertaining guests to clean your barbecue immediately after you last used it. It’s possible that you were too busy entertaining and socializing with guests. If you have opened your barbecue in preparation for a new gathering and are horrified at the accumulation of grease and chargrilled food leftovers, there are easy ways to clean it.

It would be best if you cleaned your barbecue, as explained above. It may seem silly, but it is important to clean the barbecue before storing it away for a long time or covering it up for winter. If you don’t do this, bugs and rodents could find leftover food. You could find a mouse trapped in your barbecue the next time you open it. This is enough to make you stop barbecuing.

Heat your grill before you begin cleaning it. Heat will help to remove any leftovers from the grill. Then, you can turn it off and let it cool. The barbecue should be warm, but not so hot that you are in danger of being burned. Wipe the grill with a wet cloth.

You can also use a home remedy instead of a barbecue cleaner. Sprinkle baking soda on the grill and leave it for 10 minutes, then wash with warm water and a sponge. All you have to do now is rinse.

Allow the barbecue time to dry and air out after cleaning before covering it. If you don’t, the moisture trapped in your barbecue could lead to mold growth.

Barbecue Preserved

Now you have the basic knowledge of how to maintain a barbecue. You can be sure that your barbecue will last a long time if you follow these steps.
