Five Quick and Easy Ways To Clean BBQ Smoker Grills

bbq smoker grillsThere's no doubt about it, Americans love to cook outdoors. Having everyone over for a bbq is an all-American pastime. But a great bbq takes the right equipment and techniques. And the very first thing you need for a great bbq is a nice, clean grilling surface. Here are five quick and easy tips for cleaning bbq smoker grills.

Way #1: Clean With Steam

A water-soaked newspaper can create a great steam bath for your bbq! Let your bbq start cooling off. Then cover the grill in the water soaked newspapers (sort of the hot towel treatment you get during a facial) and close it. Let it sit for at least thirty minutes. Aaah!

Way #2: Clean With the Dishwasher

Some parts of the grill, like the hotplates, will fit into your dishwasher. Put them in while they’re still warm (so the food does not dry on the surface) and they will get a good sudsing and a great steam rinse.

Way #3: Clean With Vinegar

Good old vinegar to the rescue once again! To clean bbq smoker grills, spray a mixture of water and vinegar on the grill and leave it there, letting it sit for 10-15 minutes. When you get back after about 10-15 minutes, spray the grill again. Then scrub the grill. Make sure you tackle the interior, too, scrubbing with a sponge or a brush until it sparkles.

Way #4: Clean With Coffee

People want to put their own personal stamp on their grilling experiences. One way they do this is by purchasing grilling accessories. In fact, the number of grillers who have three or more accessories or utensils totals about 83%. So, don’t forget your utensils! Dried on food will come off if you soak your utensils in coffee before you scrub them. Then rinse thoroughly!

Way #5: Clean With Baking Soda

We all know that baking soda can help clean just about anything. This includes bbq smoker grills. A mixture of baking soda and water, when rubbed across all surfaces, will make grills sparkle!

Way #6: Clean With Hot Water

Hot, soapy water is a great way to keep bbq smoker grills clean. A great tip is that using crumpled up aluminum foil acts as a great scrubbing agent for your grill with sudsy hot water, just in case you don’t have a bbq brush to use on the grill.

We all agree there's nothing like a fun-filled bbq featuring delicious foods like brisket, smoked meats and more. Whether they are using competition grills or custom smoker grills, your chef will cook like an award-winner with the head start of a sparkling, well-maintained bbq smoker grill. Low and slow, pit smoked or in a stand up smoker, let the feast begin. And then, get ready to enjoy all the good, clean fun of a real feast!
