Michelin star BBQ cleaning tips from chef Steve Smith
by Northern Life
Summer is on its way and soon it will be the perfect weather for a BBQ. After you have wined and dined your guests, the last thing you want to do is clean the BBQ.
So Michelin star chef Steve Smith has provided his tips on how to clean your BBQ as easily and as quickly as possible. It is important to clean your BBQ regularly to prevent food poisoning and to prolong the life of the BBQ.
Preheat the Grill
Clean the grill just after preheating it, this way the grease and food will scrape off easily.
Grab an Onion
To remove all of the grit, place a half cut onion on the end of a fork and rub onto a hot grill.
Clean your grill with soapy water after cooking, then rinse and dry immediately and rub vegetable oil across the grill to prevent rust.
Don’t throw water
If you are using a charcoal grill, then do not throw cold water over the coals after cooking as this will create a mess!
Crack open a Beer
Pour half a bottle of beer over a heated BBQ then rub with newspaper for a clean grill. Then you enjoy the rest of the beer for yourself!
Create a Paste
Mix baking soda and water to make a paste then cover the grill in it with a wire brush. Let it dry for 15 minutes then wipe the grill with a dry cloth and place it over the hot coals for 15 minutes to burn off any remains before cooking the food.
