How to Clean the Barbecue Grates
Keeping your barbecue clean helps prevent the food from sticking to the grates. Plus, it keeps your food tasting its best by keeping any unwanted burnt pieces away. The easiest way to clean a barbecue is to scrub the grates with a wire brush while they are still hot, immediately after grilling. If you forget, turn the barbecue to HIGH and close the lid for about 10 min. to burn away the excess food residue. Then turn off the heat and use a wire brush to scrub the grates clean.
