Not that anyone in this community would let a little snow, sleet, or ice stop them from grilling in winter, but it never hurts to give your grill a little spring cleaning and tune up. Here's what's on my checklist: http://barbecuebible.com/2013/05/01/10- ... YmiWJXH0UU

What's on YOUR spring tuneup checklist?

Take rag, dip in water, wipe down outside of Egg and continue cooking like its any other day. No tune up needed, but there was a little present a birdie left me that I felt had to be scrubbed off.

I'd have a tough time with charcoal tip #3 because I'm so cheap. It'd go against my nature to scrap a grill without at least giving rust repair a shot, unless it's really bad.

My pit never sits dormant for too long (a week or two at most - year round), so its constantly being maintained. :P

+1. Although I scrap a burn barrel every few years, I'd be hard put to scrap a grill. My original ECB vertical water smoker is still with me after 16 years and I still use it occasionally.

Other than that, I pretty well stick to Steven's list with one addition: figure out if there are any new modifications to try this year. :D
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.
