Nothing is more disappointing than trying to grill that perfect steak when your barbecue just won’t heat up and cook the way it used to.

To avoid this, the grilling experts at Broil King offer some helpful tips to get your gas barbecue ready for the season ahead. Here is their advice:

Give your grill a good cleaning
Begin by removing the cooking grids, grates and burners from your grill. Brush the inside of the oven with a sturdy bristle brush to remove the build-up of grease. Using a grill cleaner, scrub the inside and outside of the oven and then rinse with water. Never use oven cleaner on your grill since it is corrosive and can damage the other components.

Check for leaks
Inspect the gas hose to make sure there aren’t any cracks or leaks. This can easily be done by preparing a soapy solution and applying it to the connections at the tank and valve. Turn the tank on slowly and watch for bubbles to form, which indicates that there is a leak. Try tightening the connections and re-test. If persistent leaking or blistering is detected, stop using your grill and replace the gas assembly.

Inspect your burners
Carefully inspect your burners making sure there are no damaged ports or holes rusted through. If there are, it’s time for a replacement. Check all igniter connections to ensure they’re not loose and remove any debris from the components.

Beware of spiders
It’s very important to keep the burner tubes clean. Spiders love to make a nest in these tubes, creating blockages that can cause serious damage. Clean the tubes using a venturi brush, or bottle brush.

Season your grids
Check the cooking grids to make sure no welds are broken and brush off any stuck on residue. If you have cast iron cooking grids, season them with oil to keep food from sticking and to help prevent rust.

Maintain the little things
Finally, check the condition of your control knobs, thermometer, and handles. Replacing small items like this can refresh your gas barbecue and make it look new again.

Taking a bit of time each season to clean and inspect the gas barbecue will prolong its life and will ensure it is reliable for another great barbecue season.

Broil King Grilling Techniques: Indirect Grilling

The indirect method of grilling is a technique for cooking larger cuts of meat such as roasts or poultry. As the name implies, the food is not grilled directly over the heat but by hot air circulating around the food. This set up means there is no need to turn or baste the food. The result is delicious, worry-free barbecuing with little chance of flare-ups.

In this segment BBQ Naz shows you how to grill using the Indirect method. Indirect cooking is great for cuts of meat that take a while to cook. The indirect, convection oven like way the heat circulates around the oven keep the food moist. Watch and enjoy!


Indirect Cooking - Drip Pan

Juices and drippings fall and mix with the contents of the drip pan. This mixture will vapourize, impart delicious flavours and ensure a moist and succulent roast, chicken or turkey.

To use the drip pan method:

  1. Remove the grids and place the drip pan on top of the heat medium

  2. Pour water or other cooking liquid, such as fruit juice or wine, into the drip pan

  3. Replace the cooking grids

  4. Preheat the grill on HIGH for 10 minutes then adjust the heat to MEDIUM or MEDIUM/LOW

  5. Spray or brush the grids with cooking oil, then place the meat directly on the grids above the drip pan

  6. Close the lid, and sit back and relax as your food becomes infused with delicious flavour


Indirect Cooking - One Burner

  1. Place a drip pan over the heat medium, under the cooking grids, on the side of the grill where you will be turning off the burner

  2. Preheat the grill on HIGH and then turn off one burner.

  3. Brush or spray the cooking grids with cooking oil.

  4. When grilling beef or pork sear the meat on all sides using the lit side of the grill and then transfer it over to the unlit side.

  5. Regulate the heat setting to maintain your desired temperature, (generally MEDIUM)

  6. This method is wonderful not only for roasts but also for thicker steaks, chops and bone-in cuts of chicken.
