Shannon Lush shows how to clean a dirty BBQ naturally.
1. Turn on the burners and heat for a few minutes.
2. Next, turn the heat to low and use a scraper to remove most of the encrusted, food residue from the hot plate and griddle.
3. Then being sure to stand well clear of the hotplates, spray the whole surface with white vinegar (having transferred it to a spray bottle). Vinegar is an acetic acid – so the acid gets to work breaking down the stubborn grease and making it nice and easy to wipe clean with paper towels.
Note: White vinegar is flammable, so be careful when spraying on hot surfaces.
4. The final step is to apply a dollop of vegetable oil – enough to reach all corners of the hot plate and griddle when you rub it with paper towels. Give it a good wipe over – the thin smear of residual oil is enough to condition the plates and inhibit the formation of rust.
