What you need to know before buying a grill cover

If you’re new to bbq-ing, the idea of buying a bbq cover may not have crossed your mind. You’ve probably been bbq-ing for years and nothing ever happened. It’s only when you think about bbq covers that it occurs to you, hey, maybe I should buy one of those? Read on if this is you. If not, skip ahead!

Remember – bbq covers are cheap enough that there’s no reason NOT to buy one, even if they never get used (except as spare seats). Grill covers come in all different sizes and materials; whether or not they’ll suit your needs depends on what kind of bbqs you own and how many. If you bbq at home but also bbq in your garage/backyard, you’ll need a bigger bbq cover than if it’s just for bbqs at home.

Size is key!

Don’t buy a bbq cover that doesn’t fit your bbq, otherwise the grill will be damaged every time it rains or snows! Whether you have a small bbq or one built into your backyard deck, there’s a bbq cover out there to suit.
