How To Clean Your Grill
Extending the life of your grill means protecting and cleaning it regularly. You should give your a grill a thorough cleaning at the beginning and end of grilling season or even more frequently if you use it a lot.
Follow these six easy steps, then fire it up:
Use a stiff bristle brush to scrub gates.
Clean burner protectors with a scrubby sponge and soapy water. Then wipe grime from the burners themselves.
Empty ash, char and gunk by removing the grill’s bottom plates or tray. With a charcoal grill, make sure you empty the ash catcher.
Clean the inside of the grill hood or lid with a brush and soapy water.
Exchange your empty propane tank for a full one, or stock your charcoal grill with new coals.
Keep your grill clean by use drip pans/aluminum foil when cooking and investing in a grill cover to protect it from the elements.
