Grill Care

Summer is here and many of us will be grilling Taking care of the grill is very important and should be done before and after using the grill.

Seasoning the Grill:
This is a needed step whether it is a new grill or it is the first time to use the grill after a long winter. To season a grill:
•Build a large/hot fire in the bottom of your grill

•Wrap your grill grate with foil. (Remember to punch a few vents allow the edges.)

•Place the grill grate over the fire and allow it to cook for 15 minutes.

•Remove the foil and then use a grill brush to brush the burnt residue from the surface. (This would include any manufacturing residue on a new grill grate.)

•After brushing thoroughly, wipe the grate down with a lightly oiled paper towel.

Before you use the grill make sure that the grates are prepared properly. You should preheat the grate as well as brushing the grate to remove any residue left from the last time the grill was used and be sure to wipe the grill grate down with an oiled towel.

After grilling the best thing to do is to prepare the grill for the next time you will use it. That way the mess that you found it in this time will not be the way you find it next time. A few things to remember when you are done using the grill is to

•Let the grill cook for an additional 15 minutes on high heat. (This will burn off anything leftover.)

•Once the grill has cooled, clean the grill with warm, soapy water. Make sure grill parts are completely dry to avoid rust.

•Brush the grill with baking soda to help keep the grill looking its best. (Baking soda is a great natural cleaner and polishing agent).

•If your grill is outside, make sure you protect your grill against the elements with an appropriate grill cover.
