Anyone who has ever purchased an expensive grill hopes for many years of superior performance and tasty BBQ. Unfortunately, the natural environment presents various challenges for maintaining grill functionality and appearance. If you do not have the space available to bring your grill inside during inclement weather months, the next best thing is to cover your grill with snug-fitting durable materials. Most grills do not come with a cover but if you want to preserve the life of your grill, a cover is absolutely necessary.
Avoiding the Weather - Depending on the climate in which you live, any number of atmospheric occurrences can wreak havoc on your grill. Protecting your grill from harsh weather should be a primary concern, because a grill cannot be expected to stay in good shape if it is constantly exposed to the elements. Moist air, wind, rain, hot sun, and snow can cause permanent damage resulting in decreased grill performance and an unattractive appearance. A properly fitting cover made of durable materials will successfully protect your grill from these detriments.
Keeping it Clean – A grill can become very dirty after being subjected to months of rain and snow. A snug, waterproof cover will keep out any dirt or residue that may shorten the life your grill. It is good practice to clean your grill before covering in order to prevent corrosion and to limit the time spent opening your grill for the new season.
Protecting from Animals - The only animals that should be in your grill are the ones you are marinating. Wild animals inside of your grill will lead to an unsanitary environment that will cause your grilled food to be unsafe for consumption. A cover will prevent any creatures or insects from making your grill into their new home or recreational center.
