The Simple Way To Clean Your BBQ: A Step-by-Step Guide

Jul 05 2018
Grilling season is upon us, and that means it's time for you to clean that nasty grill . We'll break down seven simple and fast ways to get your BBQ grill back into cooking mode. Trust us when we say you'll thank us for a job "well-done". Be sure to stick around as there's plenty of great "grate" BBQ puns to go around.

Step 1: Pro-Pain



Safety is always a top priority, and cleaning the BBQ can be dangerous if you don't know what you're doing. If you have a propane barbecue, make sure that all dials are firmly off and be sure to wait a couple minutes before you disconnect the tank. If the tank is empty, grab a new one on your next grocery run or do a quick drive-by to your local convenience store if you need one ASAP. There’s nothing more depressing than discovering the tank is empty just as you bring out a plate of perfectly seasoned steaks.

Step 2: Grate Job



Open up your grill and remove the grill, grates, grease pan and any other removable metal pieces. You might want to pop on a pair of work gloves since this is bound to be a messy job. Use a cheap putty knife, old spatula or any thin flat tool to scrape the sides of the grill and clean up as much gunk as you can. For added measure, you can fill up a large bucket with a squeeze of dish soap and hot water and let the parts sit in the suds for 15 minutes.
Step 3: Different Strokes



Remove the grates and grill from the soapy water and use a grill brush to scrape away any loosened debris or grease. The filth should be easy to get off at this point since the soaking step is designed to loosen and lighten the greasy barbecue build-up.

Step 6: Hose Away



Once you’re happy with your scrubbing results, pull out a garden hose to spray down the metal pieces, making sure to rinse away all the soap and loosened debris. To ward off rust, use paper towels or drying cloths to make sure that any metal pieces are completely dry.

Step 7: Reassemble



Replace the shiny, sparkling metal grills, plates and grates back into your barbecue. Give the exterior a good wipe down as well; you don’t want any guests feeling worried when they see that their smoked sausage is coming out of a nasty looking grill. Reconnect the propane tank and voila! You're now ready to start grilling whenever the mood strikes.

Now that you’re armed with the knowledge of what to do to get your BBQ in shape for the summer, you can finally "ketchup" with your guests. Just try not to be all up in their "grill". That was the last BBQ pun, we promise.
