Your gas grill takes a beating during the grilling season. From greasy burgers, juicy steaks, delicious fish, and maybe even vegetables, your grill cooks all the food you love without asking for much in return except a good cleaning once in a while. Typically, it’s a good rule of thumb to deep clean your grill before grilling season begins or at least once in a while to ensure your beloved grill is still working properly and safely. So if the mood strikes or if it has been a hot minute since you gave your outdoor Orlando grill a scrub down, get your gloves on and get ready to make that baby sparkle this summer!

Supplies To Clean Your Orlando Grill

Cleaning your grill is pretty simple with the right tools and a little elbow grease. I’ll you need to make your Orlando grill look as good as new is:

  • Grill Brush
  • Bristle Brush or putty knife
  • Rags or Paper Towels
  • Soap and water
  • Gloves (optional)

That’s it! Nothing fancy here.

Get To Work

Now it’s time for the fun part (just kidding). While cleaning your grill isn’t the most fun part of owning one, it doesn’t need to be a tedious task. Turn on some great music or make it a family project, you may be lucky enough to have willing children who are more than happy to clean the grates just to see what lies beneath. If children do help you in the clean process, make sure they wear gloves and only have them scrub the grates once they have been removed.

Never leave children around a gas grill unsupervised.

Cleaning your Orlando grill is pretty straight forward work, so let’s get started!

  1. Detach or turn off the gas supply while cleaning, we don’t want accidents.
  2. Give those grill grates a good scrub with your grill brush. Many of us use our grill brush before and after grilling victuals, this time just scrub a little harder. You may need to use a bristle brush or putty knife to get the really “caked-on” chunks.
  3. Remove the grill grates to clean the underside.
  4. Clean anything covering the burners. This includes any ceramic briquettes, V-shaped metal heat tents, or lava stones. Just simply brush any of these items clean.
  5. Clean the burner tubes and make sure any gas ports are open and free of debris.
  6. Clean the grease collection tray and properly dispose of the grease. Never pour grease down a sink. Throw the grease in a container and when it hardens dispose of it.
  7. Don’t forget to wash the outside of the grill with soap and water.
  8. Put your Orlando grill back together and get to grillin’.

See, the hardest part of cleaning the grill is finding the motivation to do so. With an outdoor Orlando grill you want to make sure it’s cooking and working properly, so make sure to give it a good scrub down once every few months or at least twice a year.

Happy Cleaning!
