It's BBQ season, and your grill should be a gateway to the outside, not an obstruction because of its low-quality features, faulty design, or need for repair. Here are five reasons to replace your grill.

Just about every grill will break down eventually, even with regular maintenance. You may think your old grill is just fine, but it might be time for an upgrade. Repairable issues or items are:

  • Minor gas leaks.
  • Uneven heating.
  • Damaged venturi tubes.
  • Rusty grill grates.
  • Broken regulators.
  • Broken lights.
  • Other gas burner issues.

Some faults are deal-breakers because they compromise your safety and require replacement. Safety is paramount when playing with fire so you don't endanger yourself, your loved ones, or your home. 

Five Reasons to Replace Your Grill for Summer

The following five issues are significant reasons to replace your current grill so you're ready to go for the summer and throughout the year.

1. Rusty or Cracked Firebox

A rusted or cracked firebox compromises the grill's safety and must be replaced. The heat from continued use will make this issue worse, so it's best to replace your old unit as soon as possible.

2. Gas Leaks

Perform a bubble test on your gas hoses and connectors by spraying them with soapy water and turning on the gas. If bubbling is observed, then there's a leak. Repairing it by replacing a hose may be possible, but sometimes, you'll need an entire replacement to fix that properly.

3. Heavy Grease Buildup

Grease is a significant safety hazard. Regular cleaning is essential to maintain peak performance, as with all machines and appliances. A considerable accumulation of grease and debris can become a severe fire hazard. If left unchecked, the continued use of your grill can cause this greasy deposit to become too substantial to scrape away, requiring replacement.

4. Structural Stability

The structural integrity of your grill will be tested over time until it's just not safe to use anymore. Wear, corrosion, and age all take a toll on metal grills and can lead to catastrophic failure if something doesn't change. Stop using your grill immediately if you experience cracks in the body, frame, or supports.

5. New Features and Abilities

Do you find yourself tinkering with your grill? If so, many features and accessories are available in today's grills. These include:

  • Rotisserie attachments for roasting meats
  • Infrared burners to sear steaks quickly
  • LED lights for better illumination while cooking
  • Matching side burners for cooking sauces and sides at the same time
  • Hybrid fuel options
  • Shelves and storage

High-performance grills are designed to be the best of both worlds, with fantastic craftsmanship and various features that provide a superior, safe grilling experience. If you find yourself without the tools and options you prefer, purchasing a new grill is prudent and rewarding.
