Now that it's finally warmer out there, it might be time to fire up the grill.

If it's been a while since you've done any grilling, you should give your grill a "check up."

Angie Hicks, founder of Angie's List, said a common problem is clogged or greasy burners.

If you have trouble lighting your grill, check the venturi tubes; they can also get clogged.

Finally, when your grill is ready to go, each time before you cook, brush some olive oil onto the metal before you set your meat down.

Whenever your grill isn't in use, always cover it.

If you decide you're in the market for a new grill, remember that the more complicated the grill, the more expensive it will be to repair.
