So, you have purchased a new backyard grill, and now it is time to protect it from the elements. Most barbecue grills are made out of stainless or porcelain coated steel; which holds up well under the elements, but also has the tendency to rust over time. Purchasing the correct grill cover will shield your investment from harsh weather conditions for years to come.
There are three important keys in selecting the correct grill cover for you grill. The first key is to purchase a cover that fits your grill. An improperly fitting cover will not protect your grill properly. The second important step is to choose a cover that is made out of a sturdy material. The final key to choosing the correct grill cover is to choose one that has some kind of tie down mechanism.
Size and Shape
In order to find a grill cover that fits it is imperative that you know the exterior dimensions of your grill. If a grill cover is too large, it will not stay in place when the wind picks up; if it is too small, then it will quickly show signs of wear and tear on the edges and corners.
The shape of your grill is also a key consideration when shopping for a cover. If you own a Big Green Egg, for example, a rectangle shaped grill cover will not work. Fortunately, the Big Green Egg manufacturers custom made grill covers for each of their grills. By choosing the proper shape cover, you will ensure that there is not excess material that can catch water and be battered in the wind.
Most manufacturers sell covers specifically built for their grills. Purchasing a cover this way will ensure that it fits your grill properly. If the manufacturer does not make a grill cover for you barbecue, then look for a generic one that is has the proper dimensions.
