What barbecue replacements could I need?
Due to the variety of options available when it comes to choosing your barbecue, it may be possible that a part that fits one barbecue won’t fit another. One barbecue might require specialist burners, whereas another could require an igniter switch to get going. Therefore, it is essential that when shopping for barbecue replacements, your own barbecue model is taken heavily into account to ensure your replacements are viable.
One item that could require replacing after regular use could be the grates. The grates suffer from the most wear-and-tear in the barbecue and need to be closely monitored to ensure your barbecue continues to function properly. A barrage of grease, butter, intense heat and smoke will eventually wear away even the sturdiest grate, resulting in blackening of the metal and cracks.
One characteristic of more modern barbecues is the inclusion of heat plates, designed to help balance the distribution of heat within the grill. Heat plates also protect the burners from any drippings during cooking. As you can imagine, the regular usage of these heat plates can wear them down over time, exacerbating the need to find suitable replacements.
Lava rocks will also require replacing. Lava rocks are perfect for helping you give your food that traditional barbecue flavour. They also help absorb the drippings from your food and can stop flare-ups from occurring. By keeping on top of replacing these parts, you can ensure you'll avoid breakages and be able to use your barbeque in the future.
