Great cleaning tips for your bbq

Great cleaning tips for your bbq

Cleaning your barbecue once you have finished with it is the only thing that makes people think twice about having one in the first place. However, don’t let that put you off. By following the simple and easy to follow tips below, you’ll have no reason to fear the burnt on food and clear up that is usually associated with a barbecue aftermath. The only thing to worry about then is the hope of decent weather.

1. Try to prevent rather than cure.

If you can get the food to not stick to the grilling surface to start with, then you will make the cleaning process much easier. The best way to do this is to brush the grilling rack with cooking oil before you place food on to it. This works really well to prevent food sticking to it and will greatly reduce cleaning up time. Be careful when you apply the oil however. If you put too much on it will drip onto the coals below which can create large flames to shoot up and can be dangerous.

2. Brush as you go.

Another good tip is to use a stiff wire cleaning brush whilst you are cooking. You see if you give the grilling area a quick scrub when you remove the food, it just helps to get rid of any bits that may want to start to stick. If you keep the gill oiled before putting on your food and give it a quick scrub after taking your food off, you should have very little scrubbing to do when finished.

3. Self cleaning method.

This method is simple. When you have finished cooking your food and are done barbecuing, you can get your barbecue to help you with your cleaning. All you have to do is to close the lid and let any burnt on bits that have stuck to the grill mesh to reduce to ash by burning them to a crisp. This will then allow you to scrape them off much easier with a wire brush.

4. Soaking is good.

If you come across any stubborn and really heard to shift burnt on bits, then simply soaking the grill mesh should help. The best way to do this is to half fill your kitchen sink with warm soapy water and just pop the grill mesh in and leave to soak for about half an hour. What this does is help to loosen any baked on food so much so that you should then be able to wipe the mesh clean with a clean cloth. You could alto pop your wire brush and any other utensils you have used into the water to help clean them too.

5. A full makeover.

It’s wise to keep the rest of the barbecue in top shape too. So while the grill is soaking, use this time to clean the rest of the barbecue. I would simply get a cloth that has been soaked in warm soapy water and give the barbecue a wipe over paying attention to the underside of the lid. If done every time you have finished barbecuing, then you will avoid a build up of grime which makes cleaning next time that much easier. Also don’t forget to clean out the ash in the tray. Make sure however, to do this only when the barbecue has cooled down sufficiently.

6. And finally.

The next time you are having a barbecue, remember to give it a quick wipe with a cloth before using. This will help get rid of any dust and bugs that usually build up on items that are normally left out in the garden or your shed for periods of time.
