Like other cooking appliances, cleaning a Weber barbecue requires the right products. Not only do they prolong the lifetime of the grill, but they also remove all the grease. Proper maintenance will keep your outdoor kitchen equipment looking brand new for years.
Although Weber grills are self-cleaning, a scrub-down every few weeks is necessary, especially if you barbecue often.
Below is a step-by-step process of cleaning and maintaining your Weber barbeque.
Steps to Keep Your Weber Barbecue Grill Spotless
The fastest and most straightforward way to clean a barbecue grill is by turning the heat high and watching any residue burn off.
However, removing all the grease and food remnants requires a few tools and cleaning supplies. These include:
- Grill brush. A grill brush should have tough steel bristles to scrub off food debris stuck on the grill. Choose the appropriate size.
- This is a plastic or metal scraping tool to help loosen food residue and grease.
- A soft scouring pad will do the job perfectly.
- Stainless steel-friendly cleaning spray. Purchase a cleaner for barbeque grills or one gentle on stainless steel.
- Use microfiber to wipe down and polish the external parts for a quick shine.
- Drip pan. Place these at the bottom of the grill to collect the dirt and grease.
- Rubber gloves. Barbecues tend to be greasy, especially if not cleaned for a while. Wear gloves to protect your hands and sleeves during cleaning.
Step 1: Disconnect your Weber barbeque from the gas tank, and if it is a charcoal model, ensure it is cold.
Step 2: Use the grill brush to remove any visible food particles or charcoal shavings from the grates.
Step 3: Spray the cleaning product onto the grates and let it soak in for approximately 30 seconds. Gently scrub using the scouring sponge and rinse it with clean water before laying it out to dry.
Step 4: For a gas Weber, clean the inside of the barbecue using the spray and scrape out any food residue and grease. Use the sponge to soak up the dirt and wipe clean using the microfiber cloth.
Step 5: Carefully wipe down the rest of the Weber barbecue, including the exterior, using the cloth. Avoid excess water, as it can reach the gas burner tubes.
Step 6: Once the grill is completely dry, reassemble it and spray some non-stick product onto the grates.
Follow the above process every few weeks or when your Weber barbeque gets messy.
Regularly cleaning your Weber barbecue grill goes a long way in keeping it in good working condition. You and your loved ones will spend memorable days bonding and sharing home-cooked barbecue meals for years, so take good care of your grill if you want it to last.
