TOM: Start by closing the lid and heating the grill for 15 to 20 minutes. Once it cools, give the grates a good scrub, using a nylon brush for porcelain or a metal brush for stainless.
LESLIE: Next, remove the lava rocks and burners, and give both a good brushing. Check the burner carefully for cracks, split seams, or holes. If any are found, the burner should be replaced.
TOM: Reassemble the grill. Test propane connections for leaks by spraying soapy water. If bubbles appear, you’ve got a leak, which needs fixing.
LESLIE: Finally, disconnect the propane tank, and either cover the grill or bring it indoors. That’s tips on how preparing your grill for winter can help. I’m Leslie Segrete.
