Is Your BBQ Grill Ready for the Grill Graveyard?

by the Dr. of Grillology

When large appliances start to break down, no one likes to admit that it is time to buy a new one. These are large purchases that often require lots of savings. As a result, you should not buy a new one on a whim, without weighing your options. Know the proper signs that it is time for a new appliance versus repairing. This goes for household appliances, like refrigerators, stoves, or washing machines. And, it is the same for outdoor grills. When a grill starts to have issues, you may be able to repair it. However, oftentimes, this can be costly. It may be more beneficial to just buy a new grill than to go through a cycle of constant future grill repairs.

Breakaway wants to make it easy for you to know when you need to buy a new grill. So, Breakaway’s Dr. of Grillology has compiled a list of the top things to look out for when your grill is nearing the end of its life. In addition, he walks your through the other important information you need to know as you make your new grill purchase. If you pay attention to what the Dr. of Grillology says, you can start to budget for that new grill, when it finally does reach the end and know what to do when you start browsing new grill options. Don’t get caught off-guard with a big purchase next summer. Continue reading this blog post from the grilling expert on Cape Cod to learn more!

Dr. of Grillology’s Top Reasons to Replace Your Grill

There are many signs that your grill is nearing its final stages of life. Is yours ready for the grill graveyard? The Dr. Of Grillology recommends replacing your grill if you run into the following issues:

  • When you can only cook on certain areas of the grid
  • When the structure of the cart is no longer safe
  • If you start smelling raw gas
  • If only one person at home is allowed to fire up the grill
  • Or it just looks ugly and decrepit.  

If you are in question just call Breakaway at 508-398-3831 and ask for a Grilloscopy. Our service department will schedule your grill for an assessment and then a consultation with our recommendations. If the grill is DOA and you procure a new grill from Breakaway in South Dennis or Mashpee (within 2 weeks) the initial assessment will be free.
