To get a grill looking neat and sparkling, follow these simple tips.
1 – First, ensure that the grill is switched off. When it is a propane gas grill, make sure that the gas is disconnected. The best time to clean a grill is while it is slightly warm, e.g. a short while after cooking.
2 – Wear a good pair of rubber gloves and remove the grates and metal plates. Put them in a bucket of hot soap and water.
3 – Loosely wrap the grill’s heating elements with foil so they do not get damaged. Utilize a brush to scrub the underside of your hood, to remove any greasy, smokey residue. Scrub the interior walls at the same time and wipe them clean with a damp paper towel.
4 – Remove the drip pan and empty the contents into the trash, you may want to scoop it all out with paper towels. Put the (mostly cleaned) drip pan into the bucket of warm soap and water and allow it soak for several minutes.
5 -Soak the grates as well as the drip pan and after that scrub them with the grill brush, after which rinse them clean. Do not try this from the sink, because any fat washed off could clog your plumbing.
6 – Take away the foil, and gently clean the elements with a grill brush. Replace the drip pan, grates and metal plates.
7 – Wipe the exterior of the grill with a damp cloth, then buff by using a dry cloth.
It is advisable to clean your grill regularly to prevent excessive grease buildup. Fat can catch fire , so getting rid of it whenever feasible is a good idea.
If you do this often enough and make it a regular part of your RV maintenance it won’t take long at all. You’ll be surprised how quickly the job will be complete when you keep up with it and your food will taste amazing.
