Always wipe down grates immediately after every use with a paper towel or wireless grill brush.
Routinely check from rusting and cracks in flavorizer bars to prevent grease from getting into burner tubes.
Make sure to check for excessive buildup on the heat deflectors that will prevent the barbecue from getting to optimal cooking temperatures.
Always wipe down rack after placing food on top with a paper towel or cloth.
Empty drip pan after every 15-20 uses of the barbecue to prevent overflowing into the bottom drawer.
Watch out for clogs and buildup present on the burners. If clogs are present, wipe down burners with a brush and use a toothpick to make sure holes are cleared.
