If you want to keep
your grill looking great and performing well for years to come, then you need to
invest in a quality grill cover. But how do you go about choosing the cover
that is right for your precious BBQ? Not all grill covers are created equal. Lightweight
yet durable, Weber grill covers feature high-quality materials that help protect
your grill from snow, rain, sun and more.
Finding the Right
Size is one of the
most important factors when choosing a grill cover. If your cover doesn't fit just right, then it could leave parts of your
grill exposed to the elements or it could be vulnerable to being ripped away by
When you buy a Weber
grill cover then you know it is designed to fit your Weber grill perfectly.
Generic covers simply won't protect your Weber Genesis Grill the way that a
Weber Genesis cover will. Your Weber BBQ cover provides a snug fit on your
grill with strategically placed straps so the cover stays on tight.
Durability and Protection
Your grill cover needs
to be able to stand up to the worst of the elements, including rain, snow and wind, as well as other risks to your grill,
like lawn chemicals and small animals.
Weber BBQ covers are
made of durable, 100% polyester fabric, which is tough enough to keep out the
elements yet lightweight so it’s easy to use. The UV inhibitors woven into the fabric protect your cover from
UV rays to resist fading and continue to look great years to come.
grill covers do not include any felt or flannel, as these materials often
attract vermin. Small animals, like mice and squirrels, love tearing apart
felt- or flannel-lined grill covers to build their nests, so it’s best to avoid
covering your grill with these fabrics.
Using Your Weber
Whether your BBQ uses
gas, charcoal or electricity, Weber grill covers are designed to extend the
life of your grill. However, some myths have developed surrounding the proper
use of grill covers, including beliefs that covers encourage rust and that you
don't need to use a grill cover in the summer.
Let us set the record straight.
You should use your Weber BBQ cover anytime
your grill isn’t in use. The notion that grill covers encourage rust is false.
In fact, your Weber grill cover can protect your grill from materials that
encourage rust, like de-icing salt in the winter.
Use your grill cover
throughout the year and not just when the weather is bad. As we mentioned
above, wind, rain and snow aren't the
only threats to your grill. Lawn chemicals can cause corrosion and small
animals can do serious damage to your grill if it isn't properly covered.
