With the arrival of spring, Arizona grilling season is in full force. As you're using your grill more and more often, it's crucial to keep it clean. Why? When you leave residue from your last meal on the grates, it will char and burn the next time you light your grill — and those burned bits are actually bad for your health.

We love to spotlight what our customers have done with BBQ Island
grills and supplies in their outdoor kitchens. This time, we've got one to share that's perfect for entertaining kids and families. This outdoor kitchen was built by Desert Designer and features a fun zig-zag counter that matches the patio and provides a clear view of the pool. The centerpiece of the kitchen is a Delta Heat 26-inch gas grill
, but these smart homeowners also added a Big Green Egg
for versatility and to prepare food for a crowd! The kitchen is also finished with our own BBQ Island 24-inch x 17-inch horizontal access door
for a sleek stainless steel look throughout the island.

One of the joys of grilling is tossing some meat over an open flame and letting it sputter and spatter until it's cooked perfectly. That's direct heat grilling, and it probably makes up the bulk of what you do with your grill, especially if you're a dedicated carnivore.

One of the most important parts of grilling is knowing when to say when. You want your meats to be cooked to perfection, of course, but looks can be deceiving. Those drumsticks might seem perfect on the outside, but if they're even a little bit raw on the inside, you could be in for some unhealthy trouble.

To help your pellet smoker live a long and productive lifetime providing delicious, meaty meals, you have to make sure to keep it clean. Good maintenance is important for any type of grill, but pellet grills require slightly different care than the average kettle grill that you drag along to tailgates.
