Charcoal Grill Maintenance Checklist

A few simple steps will keep your barbecue grill in top condition.

  • Remove any ashes. If any remain from last season, dispose of them in a noncombustible container.
  • Clean the grate. Before you have your first cookout, light a fire and heat the grate for about 30 minutes. Then scrape it with a long-handled stiff-wire grill brush to remove any leftover bits of food. If you don't have a grill brush, use a ball of crumpled foil held in long-handled tongs.
  • Wash the grill. Wash the outside of the lid and firebox with warm, soapy water; use a steel-wool soap pad for stubborn interior stains. Rinse and dry.
