How To: Green Clean the Grill Grate

Pin it button big

One of the classic 4th of July activities is firing up the BBQ.

We're managing to avoid the big grill scrub this year as we just purchased a new Smokey Joe on Sunday (ours was stolen last summer!) but for those doing the cleaning task tomorrow, here is a recipe from Mrs. Meyers for a green way to get the grate ready for the portabellas without resorting to harsh chemicals...

Step 1: Place the grate on the ground, remove any big pieces of cooked on stuff with a grill brush.

Step 2: Make a paste from Surface Scrub and All Purpose Cleaner. Use about 3 parts scrub to one part all purpose cleaner.

Step 3: Use a paintbrush to paint this paste on the grate.

Step 4: Let sit for 15 minutes, then use a strong stream of water to remove the mixture. Follow up with a scrubbing sponge or brush.
