Leaving your empty cylinder in the car, go into the store and ask the clerk for assistance with the cylinder exchange. Once the clerk rings up your exchange, you can go get your empty cylinder and meet them at the storage cage outside. The clerk will take your empty cylinder and give you a full, clean, safe cylinder.

With that, you’re done on your way!

How to Prepare Your Grill for Summer

Take some time before your cookout to clean your propane BBQ grill thoroughly! Here’s what you need to do:

  • Pre-heat the grill for 15 minutes on high heat, then turn off the grill. To do that, turn the valve on either on the propane tank or the gas line itself.    
  • Clean the grill with a grill-cleaning brush dampened with water or a different grill cleaning tool. Don’t lean over the grill while since there will be plenty of steam created.
  • To remove stubborn grease stains, add dish soap or a grill cleanser to the water.
  • Remove any residue or bristles from the grate using a damp cloth once it’s cool.
  • Remove the gas supply line from the burners. To unclog the burner’s gas ports, use a dry wire brush.
  • Clean the burner valve with warm soapy water and run water through the interior of the valve. 
  • Clean the interior of the grill with a wire brush and warm soapy water, then rinse it out with water. After they’ve been toweled dry, replace the burners.
  • Clean the outside of a stainless-steel barbecue using a specially developed stainless steel grill cleaner and a microfiber cloth. Soap and water may be used to clean ceramic, porcelain, and painted steel surfaces.
  • A grill cover will keep the grill clean and protected, extending its life. 

After each usage, give your grill a quick detailing. Keeping your grill clean not only ensures that it works effectively, but it also keeps you safe, as nearly one in five barbeque fires are caused by leftover grease.
