Prevent a Fire! Spring Clean Your Grill!

It's finally starting to get nice out here in New England and that means it's grilling weather! Unfortunately though, my parents don't understand that you need to clean out the grease buildup in your grill occasionally. After watching their gas grill erupt in an inferno of grease flames last night (I wish I had thought to take a picture, but I was more concerned with putting out the flames. I'll have to be quicker with my camera next time. I mean, YOLO, right?) I decided I would help them out and clean it for them.

So break out your cleaning supplies and a cold drink and let's get to work!

Step 4: Scrape and Suck

Now you'll be able to reach all of the nasty, heavily accumulated stuff at the bottom of your grill. Go ahead and take your scraper and break everything free while also sucking everything up with your Shop Vac. If your grill went up in a blaze of glory like this one you'll probably have some burnt paint. Go ahead and scrape that stuff away too. Burnt paint doesn't taste all that great in your grilled chicken.

Take another sip of your drink and think about how nice it is today. Move onto the next step.
