Picture this: It’s a cold, winter day, and you just can’t wait to get home and plop down in front of the BBQ. Sounds perfect, right?

Until said BBQ doesn’t work as expected that is.

So what do you do?

There must be at least 100 reasons why your BBQ Grill may not function properly. The following is a very simplified list of the more common reasons your fireplaces isn’t working:

  1. Your Ignitor has dead battery. Eventually, nearly everyone forgets to open the starter. However, it might not be your memory’s fault – water damage or soot buildup behind them could be draining the battery. If this is your situation, consult a BBQ grill cleaning expert at Texas Grill Masters for a good, solid cleaning.
  2. Your burners are wet or moist. BBQ’s work because of the heat inside the box, so if your burner is not dry, it makes more smoke than heat – and there simply may not be enough heat for your BBQ to work properly.
  3. Your BBQ grill is dirty. The gradual accumulation of soot can seriously affect the way your bbq performs. Thick layers of soot can physically restrict the flue so there is no longer enough free area to vent the BBQ properly, but as little as a quarter-inch of buildup can make more of a difference than you might think. Birds and small animals might also eye your bbq as a cozy home – so cleaners often find BBQ’s packed full of leaves, twigs and baby animals. Does this describe your situation? If so, consult Texas Grill Masters for a good, solid cleaning.
