How to buy the right grill cover

A grill cover is a great way to protect your grill from rain, snow, dirt and sun; any combination of these can seriously reduce the lifespan of a grill.

Covers come in several different materials and sizes. Here are some tips that will help you find the right one.

Follow these simple steps to find the right grill cover

  • Use a tape measure to establish the length, depth, and height of your grill. Write down these measurements. Go by the widest, deepest or highest points of reference. Or for any Broil King grill just use our cover guide online.
  • Head over to your local Broil King retailer; choose which grill cover best suits your needs. Higher quality covers are heavier, long lasting and offer handy features like handles.
  • Compare the measurement from your grill with the measurements on the front of the grill cover packaging. Find the right cover to fit your grill, and relax knowing that protecting your grill from the elements will help it last years longer.

Taking care of your grill cover

You can extend the life of your grill cover even longer by taking care of it properly. Follow these simple ownership tips. 

  1. A grill cover shouldn’t extend all the way to the ground. Leave some space to allow the grill to breathe, preventing the material from becoming moldy and rotten.
  2. Don’t leave the cover on all the time. It does a great job at keeping moisture out, but it can keep a morning dew in just as easily. If you keep the cover on all the time, you could be encouraging molds to grow on the sugars that are often left on your grill after a BBQ. If you need to store your grill for longer than a couple of days, clean it thoroughly and oil the cooking components before covering your (dry) grill.
  3. Right-size that grill cover! Too big covers dangle on the ground and too small covers will rub against the grill and eventually tear.
  4. Don’t ball a cover up and stick it under your grill! Instead use the hanging loop and hang it somewhere it can stay high and dry. There’s no need to encourage a furry animal to turn it into a cozy nest.
  5. Those hook and loop closures are your friend and could be the difference between keeping the cover in your yard or giving it away to the neighbors.
