Your outdoor grill will be the center of your outdoor kitchen during the summer season. If your grill has a side burner or two you make use of your outdoor grill instead for your indoor oven and stove and move all the heat and odor of indoor cooking outside. You can bake and roast in your outdoor grill as easily as in the kitchen oven.
Cleaning your grill after each use is important because it will greatly extend the life of the grill and, perhaps even more importantly, it make sure that you get consistent performance out of it. If the perfect 1 inch porterhouse is 5 minutes on each side in April you will need it to work as the same five minutes in August to help keep your barbecue champ company name.
The outside cleans easily with normal household cleaners. Dish-washing detergent is a pretty good grease cutter and when mixed with domestic hot water will probably be adequate to take care of the exterior of even your stainless steel grill looking like new. Do not hesitate to hose it off for getting a good rinsing. Water will not hurt the grill unless it is allowed to accumulate so folks who wants leave it warm to dry thoroughly give it a wipe down the absorbent towel.
After each use, and after the grill has cooled, remove the iron grates and these a brushing with a grill cleaning wash. You want to remove the grates before brushing because you do not want debris falling towards the burners or accumulating in the bottom of the grill pan. Wash them down with your dish washing detergent solution, give them a good rinse, dry, and being a finishing touch spray them lightly on sides with olive oil. If you do this diligently after each use the grates will never rust. Food will not stick to them either.
While the grill grates are removed spray the burners lightly with a grease cutting cleaner and gently brush them and wipe them off until the original color shines through. Give them a very light spray of vegetable oil too but wipe off any excess. Drippings and debris can rust through the thin metal burners in only one season without continuous maintenance. This is the best way to avoid the replacement associated with new burners and to keep them performing consistently. Some grills will require in which remove a lava rock grate or drip shield before you can get to the burning. In these situations there should be substantially less drippings and debris on the burners after several uses so you will just have to the build shifting upward.
