How to clean your gas grill in time for summer

Spring is in full swing and summer is just around the corner and it’s time to clean your grill in time for BBQ season. Fortunately, cleaning your grill isn’t as much of a chore as it sounds. The whole process is surprisingly easy and will probably take no more than fifteen minutes. All that’s required to get the job done is a few cleaning products and a little elbow grease. Just think, the sooner you clean it, the sooner you get started grilling up some steaks!

What you’ll need

  • Work gloves (this is going to get messy)
  • Dish soap
  • Foil
  • A grill brush
  • Some water
  • A bucket
  • A sponge

The method

1) Start by disconnecting the gas tank and setting it aside.

2) Remove the grates and burner covers.


3) Give the grates and burner covers a quick going over with the grill brush

4) Place the grates and burner covers in a bucket of hot soapy water. If your sink is big enough you can put them in there instead.


5) Using a sponge give the grates and burner covers a good scrub.

6) Once you have removed the built up dirt give them a rinse.

7) Dry the grates and burner covers with a paper towel

8) Line the bottom of the grill with some foil

9) Using the brush, scrub the interior of the grill lid and the area around the elements. The brush will dislodge a lot of built up reside that will fall into the foil.

10) Use a sponge to wipe clean the burners, switch to the brush if the dirt is particularly stubborn.

11) Remove the foil, being careful to prevent the caught dirt from spilling out.

12) Remove the drip tray and dump the contents.

13) Put the drip tray into a bucket of hot soapy water and let it soak.


14) Scrub the drip tray and dry it with a paper towel.

15) Replace the drip tray, burner covers, and grates.


16) Use a cloth soaked in soapy water to clean the exterior of the grill.

17) Rinse the exterior, and wipe with a dry cloth or paper towel.

And that’s all there is too it! Now you’ll be ready to grill up a storm, best of all you won’t have to worry about cleaning your grill, at least for another year.
