Cleaning Your Grill

Cleaning Your Grill

It’s that time again. Warm weather, fresh cut grass, birds chirping and neighborhood cook outs. If you’re like me your grill has been outside, covered but still neglected.

Here’s a checklist to help you quickly clean your grill and get it ready for the season:

  1. With all dials in the off position, turn off and remove the propane tank.
  2. Remove grill grates and metal plates under them. Place in a bucket of hot water and dish soap.
  3. Cover heating elements with a piece of foil for protection.
  4. Use a grill brush to scrub under the hood, inside the walls and above the elements.
  5. Remove the drip pan, empty it over a trash can, then place into the bucket to soak.
  6. Remove the grates and drip pan from the bucket, scrub them with a grill brush then rinse.
  7. Remove the foil and swipe the elements with the grill brush.
  8. Replace the metal plates, the grates, drip pan and reconnect the propane tank.
  9. Clean food preparation areas and sweep out any debris from the cabinet.
  10. Clean the grill’s exterior with either stainless-steel wipes or a damp cotton cloth.
  11. It’s grillin’ time!

 

Make cleaning your grill part of your spring cleaning regimen and your backyard barbecues will always be a hit.
