    Grill Cleaning?

    Anyone have a 'favorite' method to de-gunk (de-grease) a Gas Grill?
    use?
    My best man and 'circle of friends' pitched in and bought Lori and Me that incredible gas grill as a wedding present last summer. Well, it works great, but I'll be honest, despite a few attempts at washing the grates etc... it needs to be de-gunked in the worst way.

    I've read about using oven cleaner, but I'd like to stay away from the harsher chemicals if I can. Any other good methods/products out there I can use?

    That's not gunk, that's seasoning.

    Ned,

    I've had pretty good results soaking the grates in a simple green solution and scouring with a scrubby. It would be interesting to try TSP too.

    Thanks guys,
    That's good advice about the Grill part, but what about down below in the drip area?

    Ned,
    Put the grates inside a large trash bag and soak them down with oven cleaner. Close the bag up and let it sit overnight, the next day pull them out and hose them off. The gunk will rinse right off and they'll be as clean as new with little or no scrubbing. Oven cleaner will work for the grill too, but be careful if it's aluminum... oven cleaner likes to eat aluminum if you leave it on too long! There's some newer, more environmentally friendly oven cleaners out that will work fine.

    I use orange clean, the acid in it cleans the grease of easy. The best way to keep it from getting to bad is to let the grill runn on high for about 10 minutes or so. This will bake most of the grease of. Then when cool wipe it down and it will stat fairly clean.

    Ned, I use ZEP Industrial Purple Cleaner and Degreaser. HD carries it in gallon jugs. I use in a bottle sprayer at full strength. I spray it on every part of the BBQ, but I do try to keep it off the burners. Let it sit for a few minutes and wash it off with water. I use a pressure washer on mine. Makes it look brand new.

    I also use the ZEP Purple stuff on car tires, the windshield to remove bugs, on my JD tractor to clean it up. Use it the same as on the BBQ. Just make sure you rinse it off good. So far it's done a great job on anything I've used it on.
