Prep your grill for July 4th

How do you plan to celebrate July 4th this year? Chances are, the majority of us will spend at least some time around the grill, cooking up some delicious eats with family and friends. If this is the case, you'll want to make sure that your grill is clean and ready to go. Not only does a clean grill look nice, but it also makes your food taste better! Before your fire up that grill, follow these tips for a simple, yet effective cleaning:

Remove and soak grates The first step is to remove the metal grates and soak them in warm, soapy water. The dirtier they are, they longer they will need to soak. After soaking, use a wire brush to remove any extra pieces of food that remain. Then rinse and let air dry. After each time you use the grill, crumple up a sheet of aluminium foil into a ball and use it to rub the grates clean. This works best when the metal is still warm. With a little bit of elbow grease, you'll be surprised at how easily the grates come clean.

Tackle the interior If you have a gas grill, make sure that your propane is turned off and disconnected before going any further. Then, using a warm, soapy water solution and a scour pad or brush, scrub away the grease and any pieces of food that have burned to the interior. Wipe away any ash that has settled around the actual burner and make sure that it is securely in place. Don't forget about the underside of the hood--this is usually loaded with residue from the rising grease and smoke.

Give the exterior a shine After you've replaced the interior parts, wipe off any grease or debris on the outside of the grill. For stainless steel appliances, use a stainless steel wipe to gently scrub away any dirt. For all other appliances, simply use a cotton cloth with warm soapy water and clean the exterior.

Just like that, your grill will be as good as new, and ready for your big 4th of July celebration!
