We know it's only February, but before you know it, the sun will be shining a little brighter and it will be time for grilling season once more! The fact of the matter is, a clean grill prevents a buildup of bacteria and just all-around works better. So, why not learn how to properly clean your BBQ grill before you invite your friends and family over for some well-deserved burgers and hotdogs? Nobody likes their cookout with a side of bacteria, right?

Contrary to popular belief, cleaning a BBQ grill doesn't have to be an all-day affair. Logistically, if you follow the exact procedure below, you can get the grill up and running (and perfectly clean) in less than two hours. You may be thinking, "Two hours?! WTF. I don't have time for that." We get it, but seriously, think about all the delicious barbecued meats you'll be eating as a result. Let the meat be your motivator, guys. Yes, we realize how dirty that sounded. No, we don't care.



A couple of ground rules before we jump in. For starters, and this may seem obvious, this should be done outside in dry weather. No need to contest with the elements when cleaning your grill. Secondly, BBQ grills are not one-size fits all. If you notice that any of the directions below are not applicable to your grill, not a problem. Skip 'em.

That about sums it up, guys. We wish you the very best this grilling season and we hope the meat is the best it's ever been.
