Grill Cleaning Made Easy

vikinggrillSpring is in the air and it’s time to fire up the grill! Before you use your grill for the first time this season, it’s a good idea to give it a good cleaning, and it’s really pretty easy. Gather your oven cleaner, soapy water, grill brush, steel wool pad and plenty of paper towels, and let’s get started.

First, you’ll need to remove the racks and spray them down with oven cleaner. Let them sit for 30 minutes and then use the steel wool pad and soapy water to clean and rinse the dirt. If you have a charcoal grill, you’ll need to get rid of the old charcoal and clean out the basin with oven cleaner and soapy water. The steel wool pad will come in handy again to remove any dirt that’s baked on the grill. You can clean a propane grill the same way, but you need to be careful with the burners.

Make sure you inspect the entire grill to make sure there are no missing pieces or rusted parts that need to be replaced before they lead to bigger problems. If you have a propane grill, you’ll need to inspect the connections, tank and burners to make sure they’re in good working condition. Don’t forget about the outside; a little soapy water and paper towels should do the trick.

Once all the parts are dry and you’ve put the grill back together, you’re ready for your first barbecue of the season. Happy grilling!
