How to Clean Your Gas Grill

There are two kinds of fun associated with an outdoor grill:  the grilling itself and then eating what you’ve prepared.  There’s also at least one kind of misery, and that’s cleaning the grill once the feast is over or whenever you get around to it.

If you’ve struggled in the past the cleaning part, this blog is for you. So take notes or print a copy, and get ready to do the job more thoroughly and in a more orderly fashion.

Grill Cleaning Aids

  • Bucket or basin of soapy water
  • Grill brush
  • Bristle brush
  • Rags or paper towels
  • Rubber gloves (optional)

Grill Cleaning Instructions

  1. Detach the gas tank from the grill or double check to ensure the gas supply is turned off.
  2. Remove the grill grates and clean them with the grill brush, removing as much stuck on food and grease as possible.
  3. Remove anything covering the burners, like ceramic briquettes, lava stones, or V-shaped metal bars, and brush off food and other debris.
  4. Gently brush the burner tubes and inspect the gas ports to ensure they are clean and open.
  5. Use a brush or rag to clean to remove debris from the bottom of the grill and the lid. If you detect peeling paint, use a bristle brush to remove carbon flakes.
  6. Use soapy water to clean the grease collection tray. Replace any disposable pans as needed.
  7. Wipe the outside of the grill and side tables with soapy and water.
  8. Once everything is dry, replace all removable parts!

Another frequent complaint from home owners is having the propane tank go empty in mid-barbecue and not having a spare.  One way to solve that little problem is to have Plumbtastic install an outdoor gas connection so you’ll never have to worry about running out of gas again.  For more information or to request service, contact us today.
