Although summer is just getting started, our grill has seen its fair share of action. From steaks and burgers to pork chops and hot links, we've used our grill numerous times for flavorful family meals. Clean up is not necessarily the best part of using our barbeque, but we've gotten it down to a science and this handy hint is definitely worth trying out.


When you have a grill with caked on food, try heating up the coals and then rubbing the grill plates down. Simply wad up a few sheets of tinfoil and place it between your barbequing tongs. Use the tongs to rub the tin foil up and down the grill, knocking off all the excess debris. It's a fast and easy method for grill clean up - no fancy tools required

Moms, what are your grill cleaning tips?

We have a battery powered brush that does a pretty good job.

My husband just has one of those hard bristled brush things and uses that to clean the grill.

I like the idea of a battery powered one.

This is probably what we should do as well. It would probably make life a lot easier.

My biggest tip I learned from my brother. Clean the grill BEFORE you light the bbq, lol. Pretty obvious one you would think

I have an electric grill with a nonstick surface so I have to use a plastic scrubber to clean its surface. I tend to avoid cooking sticky gooey foods on that grill. I let my DH cook those foods on his charcoal grill.
