Ensure you can enjoy al fresco dining all year long with these expert tips.

Winter in Dubai is a great time to enjoy al fresco meals and residents love nothing better than a good outdoor BBQ with family and friends.

However, maintaining these outdoor havens can be challenging, especially if used regularly. But there are things you can do to keep your outdoor BBQ area in tip top shape.

Begin by investing in quality materials. Choose durable, weather-resistant materials – stainless steel is an excellent choice for grills and countertops as it withstands high temperatures and is corrosion-resistant, ensuring longevity in the scorching Middle Eastern sun.

Keeping your outdoor BBQ area spotless with a regular cleaning routine is also key. The combination of dust, sand, and intense sunlight can take a toll on surfaces. Wipe down countertops, clean grills, and sweep the surrounding area to prevent the accumulation of debris that can lead to deterioration over time.

Another tip is to choose the right grill cover. Invest in a high-quality grill cover to shield your barbecue equipment from dust, sand, and the occasional sandstorm. Make sure the cover is designed to resist UV rays and is a snug fit to prevent wind from causing any damage.

It’s also important to regularly inspect all components of your BBQ area, including gas lines, hoses, and burners. The extreme temperatures in summer can cause wear and tear, so replace any damaged or worn out parts promptly to ensure safe and efficient operation.

If you want to keep your BBQ area in truly perfect condition, then schedule periodic professional maintenance to assess the overall condition of the space.
