Clean A BBQ Grate Without A Brush

Clean A BBQ Grate Without A Brush

Is your BBQ badly in need of a clean? If you don’t have a wire brush handy, here’s a quick and natural way to clean your grill grate.

Pull the grate from your BBQ and place it in a bed of stone or large gravel. Massage it into the stone so it rests with about an inch of stone on top. Commence rubbing of stone across the grate. Flip and repeat.

This technique will not only clean the top of the cooking surface but also the bottom, unlike a typical scrub from a wire brush.

After a quick rinse with soap and water, your BBQ is ready for use again. Check out the guide at MyFixItUpLife for more details and pictures of the process.

  • Give me strength, I should think the average person would have more access to a wire brush that a gravel driveway and as stated do I really want grease and grime on my nice gravel driveway. Where do people come up with this crap and why does it get to get posted on a very good site like Lifehacker.

  • LOL what a scrub, everyone knows the best way to clean a BBQ grill is to rub is on freshly laundered white sheets.
