Gas Grill Cleaning 101
As Memorial Day approaches, its time to start getting ready for the summer. First step: clean the grill. Rather than sit there with a wire brush and a sweaty hand, why not let your gas grill clean itself? Simply clean out any obvious gunk within a gas grill, cover the grates with tinfoil, cover and place on "high" until the smoke stops. Then rub the grates with Crisco to season it. And you are done.
The photos above are from my grill on Fire Island: no brushes or any other cleaning devices were used in the making of this photo. The only thing is to remove the excess gunk beforehand or you will end up with a heck of a grease fire! Thanks to Saul and Dan for this tip.
