Welcome to Florida, where the sun shines bright (on most days), and many summers are spent at family barbecues by the pool. For most of us, attending barbecues have been a summer staple for as long as we can remember, so bring out your favorite tools and get grilling! Use our Barbecue 101 guide for the perfect weekend cookout!
Tips for Cleaning Your Grill:
- Make sure your grill is completely turned off and cooled. Give your grill a brush to clean off as much as possible.
- Place your grates and infrared panels in a bucket that is filled with dish soap and warm water. Let them soak for 15 minutes.
- While your grates are soaking, use a handheld vacuum cleaner to clean up loose particles at the bottom of your grill. You can also brush and clean the inside walls with a grill brush. Wipe the walls with a damp paper towel once you’re done.
- After you have soaked the grates and panels, scrub the inside of the grill to remove what’s left. Then, use a sponge to clean the outside of the grill.
*Grills vary in size, model and more. Please use caution when cleaning your grill, as these tips may not be for every grill. Please remember to disconnect your propane to ensure that your grill is not hot when cleaning!
