You know the last time you cleaned your own BBQ, but if you're grilling in the park, you can't be sure when that public BBQ last got a thorough scrubbing down. Next time you head to a cookout at the park or camping, here's how you can clean that BBQ easily.
You'll need some basic BBQ-cleaning tools: a grill brush, aluminium foil, two paper bags and a fork. Here's what to do:
- Scrub the BBQ and charcoal grates with the grill brush.
- Wipe down the outside of the BBQ. If there is any leftover ash in the BBQ, cover one hand in a bag and sweep the ashes into the other bag.
- If the BBQ has an ash catcher, clear that out as well.
- Line the BBQ with aluminium foil and poke holes in it with a fork to allow air to get through.
Now you're ready to fire up the BBQ and enjoy your day outdoors. For photo examples of each step, check out the original post linked below.
