Regular maintenance is the key to ensuring your Weber Q barbecue stays in top condition for years to come. In this guide, we'll provide you with simple cleaning and maintenance tips to help you preserve the functionality and appearance of your beloved barbecue.
Begin by using a dust brush to remove any accumulated dust, spider webs, or unwanted guests from the exterior of your barbecue.
Next, take a soft cloth and soak it in hot water mixed with a gentle dishwashing detergent. Use this to clean the lid, side tables, and other exterior components, leaving them looking spotless.
Consider investing in a Weber Q premium barbecue cover to protect your barbecue from weather, dust, and dirt when it's not in use.
Before firing up your barbecue, remove the grills and scrape down the inside of the cook box using a Weber cookbox scraper, directing the debris into the drip tray.
After cleaning the cook box, inspect the drip pan. Pull out the front-facing grease tray and replace the small foil tray. Replace the drip tray whenever a layer of grease or built-up debris, especially after cooking a fatty meal, or before you plan to cook a fatty meal.
To clean the inside of the lid, use the cookbox scraper to remove loose debris. For stubborn stains, use Weber Q Cleaner according to the instructions on the bottle, but remember to remove the cooking grills to prevent any cleaner from contacting them.
Turn your barbecue to high and let it burn for 15 minutes. This process carbonises any remaining grease and debris, transforming them into ash. You can then easily brush away the ash using a Weber grill brush directly onto the hot grill.
You should clean the HOT grill with a grill brush before every cook. After the pre-heat time, before you add food to the grill, give it a brush down. This will prevent today’s meal tasting like last week’s meal!
DEEP CLEANING (ON A COLD BARBECUE):
For a thorough cleaning, start by removing the cooking grills and soaking them in hot water with dishwashing detergent to remove stubborn grime.
Use a clean Weber grill brush to clean the burner tube. Brush perpendicular to the tube rather than along it to avoid blockages.
Carefully clean the inside of the cooking box, ensuring that no water or cleaning product enters the burner tube. If necessary, you can remove the burner tube for an even more thorough clean.
