Steps 1-3: How to a clean BBQ grill
Be careful to follow the manufacturers’ suggestions when choosing a cleaning method and products – every barbecue is different, although most should follow a similar outline as the guide below. It goes without saying that you should always leave your barbecue a decent amount of time to cool down before cleaning it.
1) With the grill in place, get your barbecue to full heat. If you have a gas barbecue, that just means turning the heat on full. For a charcoal barbecue, throw in fresh coals and wait for them to reach a red-hot temperature.
2) Put the lid on, and leave it for 15-20 minutes. This bakes off – carbonizes – grime and food particles, making cleaning BBQ grill parts easier.
3) Wait for the barbecue to cool down, and then scrub the bars with a steel brush. Make sure to angle the brush into awkward corners.
