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
