Leftover food particles on the cooking surface can make food stick and charred remains left over from last season can be a breeding ground for bacteria. Research has shown that cooking food over caked-on residue and gunk has the potential to make those who eat it sick. There is also the potential for dangerous flare ups if build ups of grease are ignored. In addition, cooking on an improperly cleaned grill can also have a negative impact on the flavor of the foods."
Grill Cleaning Tips:
1. Remove cooking grates from grill and scrub with warm water and a Brillo
Steel Wool Soap Pad or Heavy Duty Scour Pad.
2. For cooked-on, hard-to-clean surfaces turn Brillo sideways and scrub across
the grain of the pad
3. If it's a charcoal grill, remove the coal grate and brush out the insides
4. For gas grills remove briquettes, lava rocks or metal flame shield to expose
burner. Clean ash and residue from around burner, be sure burner is in place
when finished cleaning
5. Rinse grates, reassemble grill, and allow to air dry
6. For coated grill exteriors and more delicate surfaces use Brillo Estracell No
Scratch Scrub Sponge with Wedge Edge
