The size of a grill cover is very important when making a purchase. If you see a cover that says, “one size fits all,” it probably won’t fit any grill very well. A poorly fit cover won’t protect your grill as well as one that is snug. Some grill companies make covers that are model specific, meaning they are made to fit perfectly on a certain model of grill. This makes buying easy. However, these are typically a little more expensive, and other companies make grill covers in a variety of sizes to fit many different grills. Before you can find the perfect one, however, you need to get out the tape measure. It’s important to know the height, width, depth, and how high off the ground the bottom of the grill sits. You also need to be aware of any handles or chimneys on your grill that a cover needs to accommodate. The shape is also important. Fortunately, manufacturers make covers for grills of all shapes and sizes.
