We’ve all done it. Made a delectable grilled meal, but it makes a huge mess on your grids. They’re caked in particulates and it’s just gross. You don’t want that on the next thing you make, especially if it is a dessert!
Sometimes it’s not as simple as brushing off the gunk with your brush. What if you used copious amounts of your favourite sauce, it dripped as you basted those amazing ribs or that chicken breast, and now it has caramelized itself to your cooking grids with the tenacity of a giant squid coated in super glue! What if your house sitter used the grill in your absence and didn’t clean the grill to your exacting standards? (Although you cannot blame them for wanting to use the piece of art that is your grill)
These things happen. Here is how to make them un-happen.
For Stainless Steel Cooking Grids:
For Cast Iron Cooking Grids:
Caring for Cast Iron Cooking Grids is like caring for that awesome frying pan that has been in the family forever. If for some reason rust has appeared on the surface of these grids, scrub it gently off with steel wool and repeat the curing process again.
Everyone has a preference for their cleaning tools, something that works better for them. Check out the Maintenance Accessories to get an idea about what would work for you.

With Roasted Potatoes
Glazed carrots and roasted potatoes were both always on the menu when it came to any major family holiday meal. These dishes were prepared in the same way every time and passed down from mother to daughter for at least four generations. Today I am going to share with you a new take on the classic Roasted Carrots, and tell you the secret (as per my mother’s mother) to the perfect Roasted Potato.View Details
