The Importance of Regular BBQ Cleaning

Regular BBQ cleaning is important to safely operate your grill. So …how often should you clean it? The short answer is – after every use.

Although no one tends to enjoy the task of cleaning their BBQ, the buildup of grill grease, carbon and carcinogenic ‘leftovers’ can be damaging to your grill as well as your health. As such, your cleaning routine should be as follows…

Clean Your BBQ After Every Use. A simple grill cleaning after every use, once the grates cool, will help minimize the ‘heavy lifting’ of a deep clean. Your BBQ wire brush will do just fine in tackling this.

6 Month BBQ Cleaning. Doing a deep clean of your BBQ every 6 months is also important. This should include disassembling your grill , checking the gas connection, as well as ensuring any rust is addresses.

Professional Grill Cleaning. A professional grill cleaning is also an option, especially if you have an outdoor kitchen and large grilling station that could use some TLC.
