How to clean your gas grill

Here in Kansas spring is again upon us.  And for us meat eaters spring means grilling time. Nothing says spring like having a cold beer in my hand while I watch my meat cook on the grill.

Great stuff like hamburgers and hot dogs.

And sometimes when the mood is right shish-kabobs.

But before each grilling season I like to give my grill a nice cleaning.

Steve Sheinkopf over at Yale Appliance and Lighting has written a nice article on gas grill cleaning.

#1 Check for rust.  Like ethanol for small engines rust is the devil of your grill.

#2 Check to see if the grill starts and runs on high for 5 minutes. If it does, you’re good to go. If not, he explains the details of what to do next.

#3 Clean the grates.  No one likes old chunks of chicken stuck to their steak.

Check out How to Clean Your Gas Grill for all the details.
