The weather is warming up, so it's time to get ready for barbeque season and funny moments with friends and family. Often times people think the high amount of heat produced by the grilling machine is enough to kill of certain germs and bacteria, however it is not so epelletgrills.com will take you through a journey of keeping clean your grilling machine.
You will require certain tools to clean your grill, this will ultimately depend on the kind of grill you use. So whether you prefer to "burn off" the old food particles before cooking or after cooking, it is important to note that leaving old food and grease to remain on your machine will shorten its life span. Some of the tools required will include stiff wire brush, most of which are made for the job with a scraper attached to the end. You'll also need rags, warm soapy water and newspaper to lay the grill on to dry. It always helps to lightly spray the grate once you are done cleaning to make the next cleaning easier.
You’ll need to ensure that a thorough cleaning is done quite frequently for example on a bi-weekly basis. This would ensure you keep safe health and your grate lasts longer.
Basically for all types of grills (charcoal, gas and stainless steel) have almost the same procedure to cleaning, for example if you are using a charcoal grill, once you have finished cooking, but before the coals cool, use a stiff wire brush and scraper to remove encrusted food from the grate. Before starting up the next time, scoop out any remaining ash. Amazingly this applies to other grills only a few additional cleaning procedures would be added.
For gas grills; although you have more parts to clean the first process will be to remove/disengage the gas before starting the cleaning operation. The knob on your grill labeled "clean" does not actually clean your grill. The "clean" knob is intended to allow the user to pre-heat the grill before cleaning, which makes the job easier. The heat loosens or burns off encrusted food and warms residual grease.
Once you have scraped and cleaned your grate, remove layers of lava rock/briquettes and the metal plates. Clean all of the pieces with warm soapy water. Allow them to dry and replace in sequence. Hook up your propane again, remembering to check for cracks in the connector line. The last of the tips for cleaning your grill is to heat it up to burn off any soapy residue.
For stainless steel; it’s pretty same only you have to be more careful of liquids, do not use an abrasive, also be sure to know that excessive high heat discolors stainless steel and acidic sauces will corrode metals. But the most important of all is to keep your stainless steel grill dry at all times (if possible).
Overall, keeping your grill clean at all times will guarantee a longer life span alongside healthy and tasty foods.
