How To Clean A BBQ With Beer!
Alright, all your friends and family are around. You are the grill master, the food never stood a chance with you there. You are know this BBQ inside and out and the food is looking fantastic. Now after it's all said and done cleaning your BBQ can be a hassle, but with the right tools and techniques, you can make the process much easier. One unconventional yet effective method of cleaning your BBQ is by using beer. Yes, you heard that right! Beer can be a great cleaning agent for your barbeque grates. Here's how you can do it:
Step 1: Empty the grates and remove any large pieces of food.
Step 2: Pour your least favourite can of beer into a spray bottle or straight onto the grill. Any type of beer will work, but a light-coloured beer (think lagers) is preferred as it contains fewer solids that can leave residue on the grates.
Step 3: Spray the beer generously over the grates. Let it sit for about 10-15 minutes to allow the alcohol and carbonation in the beer to break down and loosen any stubborn grease and grime.
Step 4: After lunch use a stiff brush or scraper to scrub the grates. Make sure to get into every nook and cranny to remove all the build-up. The beer will also help to remove any unpleasant smells. Beer smells pretty good!
Step 5: Rinse the grates thoroughly with water to remove any remaining beer and debris.
Step 6: Dry the grates thoroughly with a clean cloth before using them again.
By using beer to clean your BBQ grates, you'll not only be left with a sparkling clean surface but also with the added bonus of a great smell! This cleaning method is also environmentally friendly and cost-effective as you won't need to use harsh chemicals or specialty cleaners.
So now cleaning your BBQ grates with beer is a simple and effective solution to keep your grill looking and smelling great. So, next time you're grilling, don't hesitate to grab a can of beer, not just to drink but also to clean your grates!
