Let's Look At The Burner Tubes
Why burner tubes are relevant to gas grills? Grilling great, sumptuous food requires quality functioning burners because without those, we can never enjoy our grilled food. Burner maintenance is the key! Burners are where the flames of the grill come out. What were discussed above, both the flavorizer bars and cook box were mentioned as well as how to clean them. But the burner tubes were left out. Despite being well protected, not maintaining the burner tubes will eventually result in surface corrosion. You wouldn’t want to use clogged burner portholes, do you? The clogged portholes will result in uneven heat. Brush cleaners come in handy which is why you must have a set of two. One will solely be used in cleaning surfaces and the other will be used for the burners only. With having the right number of sets of brushes, you will avoid transferring the grease from the surface to your burners which cause you bigger trouble. Here is how to clean Weber gas grill burner tubes:
- Across the surface, brushing breadthwise is advised in cleaning the burners instead of lengthwise.
- Take note that your burner tubes need a good cleaning or replacement is necessary.
- Once you see that the portholes are clogged and cracking which will make it impossible for you to re-open, it’s high time for a replacement.
