Grill Cleaning Tips

Hot dogs, hamburgers, steaks, and more… whatever you like to grill, you need an appliance that can get the job done right! At Modern Gas, we have all types of grills – whatever fuel-type, size, or style you prefer, we can hook you up. You’ll be ready for summer in no time!

But what good is a grill if it’s covered in old food, grease, and grime? A few good cleanings a year should do the trick, but if you use your grill a lot upping that number never hurts! Here are some tips for getting your grill looking clean, shiny, and ready for your next grill-out.

Start With The Grate

When you first begin cleaning, you’ll want to get off as much stuck-on food and grease as possible from your grill grate. Use a grill brush to really give it a good scrub, then take it out and scrub the other side, as well. And don’t forget about the metal scraper! This comes in handy when something is really sticking…

Take It Apart

Next, disassemble your grill to make sure you’re reaching every nook and cranny. Gas grills will have burner protectors that tend to get pretty messy. Any food or sauces that drip down hit these pieces first, so they often get the worst of it. Luckily, they can be easily removed and washed with a sponge in warm, soapy water to get off all that residue.

You should be able to remove the burners, themselves, too. You wouldn’t want your burners to get clogged, so getting off any excess dirt and grime is important. Wash them down just like you washed your burner protectors, and they will be like new again in no time!

Then, remove any plates at the bottom of the grill. These areas catch a lot of build-up, so they may be a bit more challenging to clean. Get as much debris as you can out. Use your sponge and grill brush to really scrape the stuck-on pieces. With a little time and effort you can make a big difference!

All that’s left to do now is reassemble, then enjoy your grill to the fullest!

Do A Thorough Check

You need to look your grill over before putting it to use. Ensure that all of the pieces are there and look out for any rust or broken down parts. If certain areas are in too bad of shape, you will want to replace these before getting any type of grilling started. Look for signs of build-up, as well, and definitely check your hose to ensure that it is not blocked up or damaged. If it is in bad shape, replace it, as the hose can fairly easily ignite, putting you and any house guests in serious danger.

Clean Everything

After sitting for months, it is likely that your grill will need a good cleaning. Make sure any dust or excess debris is scrubbed off and that you are addressing every part of the grill. Also, check out the grease trap for anything that may have been left behind from last season. If everything is clean, kicking off that first grilled meal of the year will be a lot easier and the food will turn out much better.

Test It Out

By turning your grill on and checking everything out before starting any meal planning, you can ensure that everything will be good to go once you actually need to cook. Make sure all of the burners are functioning properly and check for any leaks or signs of damage. Once you know that it is running well, start inviting people over and get those summer parties started!
