Clean the Grill Before Your Next Cookout
With the Fourth of July safely over, you’ll want to clean that dirty grill to keep your food from sticking and picking up unwanted flavors. Start with a grill that’s still warm, Kitchn advises, then disconnect the gas line and scrub the grates, barriers and flame shields with a wire brush and warm soapy water. If you have a charcoal grill, brush the debris from the interior and use a wadded-up piece of aluminum foil to scrub the grates. Finally, heat the grill for at least 10 minutes ahead of your next cookout, and enjoy!
