Getting Ready For Cookouts? How To Care For Your New Stainless Steel Outdoor Barbecue

Industrial & Manufacturing Blog

If you're ready to take your backyard fun to the next level this summer, it's time to invest in a stainless steel outdoor barbecue. Stainless steel barbecues are the best way to cook our backyard meals. Once you have your new barbecue, you'll want it to last for as long as possible. That's where proper care comes into the picture. Your stainless steel outdoor barbecue will need to be cleaned on a regular basis. There are two specific times when your barbecue will require a good cleaning. Here's a description of how to tend to those routine cleaning jobs. 

Before Each Use

If you want to provide the best care for your stainless steel barbecue, you'll need to clean it before each use. Many people clean their barbecue after each use, but there are a couple of issues with that process. First, your barbecue will still be hot, which means your chances for severe skin burns will increase. Second, your food will get cold while you're cleaning your barbecue. To avoid those issues, clean your barbecue before each use. First, turn the grill on to low heat and close the lid for about five minutes. The low heat will loosen the debris without increasing your risk for burns. Second, turn the heat off, remove the lid, and use a grill brush to scrape the loosened residue from the grates. Finally, wipe the grates with a damp cloth to remove the remaining grease and food particles. 

Twice a Year

If your stainless steel outdoor barbecue is going to get a lot of use, you'll want to give it a deep cleaning about twice a year, once at the start of your outdoor grilling season, and once at the end of the grilling season. A good rule of thumb is to conduct a deep cleaning in the spring, and then again in the fall. During the semi-annual cleaning, you'll want to clean all of the components that weren't cleaned before each use. To do that, you'll need to remove the grilling grates. This process will also allow you to give your grates a deep cleaning as well. Once you have the grates removed, you'll want to use a grease-cutting soap to scrub the inside of the grill. You'll also want to use the soap solution to clean the outside of the barbecue. Once the barbecue is clean, allow it to dry thoroughly before replacing all of the components. This will help to prevent rust buildup.
