When the weather’s warm, you probably spend more time cooking outside than inside. Lots of grilled dinners equal lots of happy and full stomachs. Lots of grilling means that you need to perform some maintenance on that grill of yours, specifically, cleaning. LeafGuard here to help break it down for you. Cleaning your grill is necessary, but it doesn’t have to be difficult.
Why is it important to clean my grill?
Alright, so maybe you’re wondering why your grill needs to be cleaned. It gets hot enough to kill germs, right? Hmmmm, maybe. There are a few important reasons why this is a must-do.
Extends the life of your grill
First and foremost, cleaning your grill keeps it running right. Perfectly grilled dinners are a source of pride for many grillmasters, and the last thing you want your grill to do is to start cooking inconsistently. Low temperatures and uneven heat can be expected if you haven’t properly cleaned your grill.
Makes cooking easier
In addition to keeping your heat consistent, cleaning makes grilling a bit easier. If you don’t clean your grill, you’re pretty much guaranteed to find chunks of leftover meat stuck to your grill. Not only is that a little gross, but it can make whatever it is you’re grilling stick to the grill grates. Also, grilling a new meat on top of old, stuck on meat is going to contaminate the flavor profile you’re going for.
Keeps you and your family safe
Lastly, a clean grill is a safe grill. if you don’t clean your grill properly, you might be inadvertently serving your family listeria, salmonella, and e. coli. Yuck. Also, did we mention that grease is extremely flammable? Built up grease can lead to one major grease fire.
So now you’re convinced that you need to clean your grill. Here are some tips for getting your grill back into its original glory.
