Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

The "Tim Allen" method of grid/rack cleaning

Every once in a while, somebody will post asking for the best method to clean their grids. Many of the responses are "don't bother" or "just burn them off at the start of the next cook", or something like that.

I don't subscribe to that philosophy. (holding back the primal grunt)

Herewith is the basis of my grid cleaning method:


Isn't she a beauty? (arg...., um nevermind...)

I find the dirtiest spot in my driveway (in the interest of killing two flying tetrapod vertebrates with one solid mineral aggregate) and set to coat both sides of my grates or racks with oven cleaner. I let them sit a bit while I set up the pressure washer. I set the pressure washer for low-pressure detergent spray (I use dish detergent) and coat the grids with suds. After letting that sit for a few minutes, I put the high pressure nozzle on and go to work (arrg, arrg, arggggggg!).


I find that it is important to do this in a different location in my driveway each time. My driveway gets cleaned up in a piecemeal fashion this way!


I've been doing this for a while, but just never took the time to take a few snapshots until today.
