Maintaining and Replacing Your Broiler

Broilers help give food at restaurants, food trucks, diners, etc. that authentic backyard BBQ feel, so having a broiler at your location is a wise move to expand you menu and offer up some broiled comfort standards. Foods commonly prepared on a broiler include burgers, steaks, eggplant, portobello mushrooms, chicken, lamb, sausage, potatoes, corn on the cob, etc. Even seafood can get down on a broiler – salmon, swordfish, etc.

If you keep your broiler well maintained, it can serve you for decades without needing to be replaced. Broilers need to be cleaned everyday because food debris and grease builds up fast. This includes cleaning the grates and radiants. Empty water and grease pans frequently and the same goes for fireboxes if you’re cooking with lava rock.

There are some tell-tale signs to watch for that can tell you that it’s time to replace your broiler. If you notice that your broiler is inconsistently cooking, you may want to think about replacing it. For example, if food is taking longer to cook than normal or if it’s cooking unevenly, time to replace it. You can have it serviced, but if the maintenance cost begins to get ridiculous you’re better off purchasing another broiler.
