  • Turn the heat on high, leave the lid closed for 5 minutes.
  • Take a 12-14 inch piece of aluminum foil and make a loose ball, baseball size.
  • Turn off the heat, and after the grill has cooled a bit, but while it’s still warm, rub the grate with the aluminum foil ball to clean.
  • Follow with a warm watery and soapy paper towel. Wipe the walls too.
  • Empty cabinet or trays at the bottom of any ash or debris.
