Do a Little Cleaning
If your grill has worked hard all summer, it will appreciate a little TLC before winter sets in. Give everything a thorough cleaning, including all the hidden spots that don’t often see the light of day. Our easy-to-follow guide to tuning up your outdoor gas grill will show you everything you need to do to have your grill in tip-top shape for winter grilling.
Look for Warming Recipes
Winter grilling is all about keeping the chill at bay, so choose recipes that are warm and comforting. If you want to serve a winter favorite like chili, grill some chicken or beef first, cut it into hearty chunks and use that in the chili. If you’re a die-hard grilled foodie, consider using spicy marinades on your meat and side dishes that offer a tasty boost of heat. Serving soup on the side is also a welcome cupful of warmth when the temperature drops and you can keep a pot warm on the grill.
