Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Keeping the grill clean

I was wondering if anyone has some good ideas on how to keep the grill surface clean, or how often you clean it. I dont want to damage the surface by scraping with a spatchula.

    Wardster, like anything else this is a matter of personal preference. You'll hear from people who rely on burn off to "cleaning connies" who wash after every use. Sooooo, that's up to you, but here's a hint that worked for me and keeps me in good standing with my wife...go to a hardware store and for $2.00 buy a replacemnet galvanized metal garbage can lid. Inverted over the kitchen sink it makes a nice shallow round soaking/cleaning tray.

    I most always 'burn off the grille' after a cook. Open the mottom damper and take the top off and let'er rip. Couple of minutes at 700º - 800º and you just dust off whats left. Occasionally I take it in and clean it wih soap and water using a nonmetallic scrubber...a little extra work but it makes me feel good. MY buddy down the street NEVER washes it he just blasts it with high heat.

    Great idea. Once in a while a good soaking is in order and it sure is easier than the elbow grease I expend. I learn something new everytime I come here!

  • Wardster,
    Ace Hardware and many other places sell cleaning tools for porcelain grids. They are the ones with the two spiral coils of wire. Works for me with some washing.[p]TNW
