How to Clean a Barbeque
Cooking on a barbeque is a fun and easy way to create a great meal. There’s only one big drawback – cleaning the sticky, messy, burned-on gunk that collects on your grill each time you use it. That chore is enough to put a lot of people off barbequing for good!
Luckily, keeping your grill clean doesn’t have to be a miserable job. Here are some simple and effective tips for cleaning a barbeque that will help you enjoy this outdoor cooking method all summer long.
Coat Your Grill with Oil
The Wire Brush Method
A stiff wire brush is a huge help in cleaning your grill. Simply give your rack a thorough scrubbing before and after each use. If you have used oil to coat your rack, getting the grill clean should be easy with a brush alone.
The Grill Stone Method
Grill stones are specially designed to help get grease and stuck-on food off of your grill. They look similar to a large pumice stone with a handle to help make scrubbing easier.
The Baking Method
Grills can sometimes be cleaned in a similar manner as self-cleaning ovens: close the hood, turn up the heat, and let the baked-on food burn off. Once grease and grime is transformed into ashes, it’s easy to remove with a brush or grill stone. However, you should be careful that this method is not prohibited by the grill manufacturer in order that you don’t void the warranty.
The Soaking Method
