You’ll be grilling a lot this summer, if you’re like most of us, and things can build up if you don’t make it a habit to clean your grill often. It may seem like a big job but if you do it regularly there won’t be a build up and it can get done in a jiff so you can get back to having fun.
Grills are best cleaned while they are still warm before the grease hardens. As such, before enjoying your dinner, brush off the big chunks of food from the grates. Thereafter, take a baking tray and fill it with water and place it over one burner ensuring that the water slowly heats up. Thereafter, close the lid and enjoy your dinner. The resulting steam will keep everything warm long after you are done.
When it comes to actually cleaning the grill, the very first thing that you should is to turn off the propane tank and disconnect it from the grill. Thereafter soak the grates and the metal plates under them in soapy warm water. Cover the heating elements will foil and with a grill brush clean the underside of the hood. Clean the inside wall as well.
Once done with the inside of the grill, gently scrub the grates and the metal plates soaked in soapy water. Rinse the grates and let them dry. Wipe the outside surface of the grill with a sponge and warm water. Once everything dries, re-assemble everything to finish the approximately 15 minutes cleaning process.
See how easy it can be? You’ll be done in no time. The next time you go to cook that delicious steak or those juicy burgers your grill will be ready and waiting. The food will taste delicious and you’ll be glad you did the work.
