Cleaning Your Grill Grate

After cooking, let the grill let the coal die out and your grill cool down before you start cleaning. This should give you enough time to eat your dinner with your whole family in peace. Take your time and eat your barbecue. The tough business of cleaning your grill can wait until you are done eating. After eating, check the grill and make sure that it is cool enough for you to start cleaning.

To clean the grill grate, use a stiff brush to brush off food residue from the grate. After brushing the grate, coat it with thin film of oil. The oil will help loosen up whatever food remnants that may cling on the grates. If you want, you may fire up the grill for about five minutes to incinerate any food remnants in the grill.

This way, you can keep your grill clean and ready to use anytime. Moreover, firing your grill for a few minutes will ensure that your grill is totally dry when you store it.

When should you clean your chimney? The best way to determine when your chimney needs cleaning is to check the inside of the chimney periodically for thick grease and dark soot.
