Secret from the Grill Cave: Cleaning Your Grill

bbqToday’s Secret from the Grill Cave is how to easily clean your grill grate whilst adding some flavour to your food. Simply:

  1. Cut a large onion in half and peal away the skin.
  2. Place each onion half in a small freezer bag and throw into the freezer for a later time.

When it comes time to grill:

  1. Give your grill a good brushing with a stiff grill brush.
  2. Pre-heat your grill to the desired temperature for the food you’re about to cook.
  3. Before placing the food on the grill, take the frozen onion half out of the freezer and place it, face down, on the grill.
  4. Using BBQ tongs, scrub your grill grate with the onion.
  5. Discard the used onion.

Any remaining debris will flake away and the added bonus is that this process will also add a wonderful hint of grilled onion flavour to whatever you’re grilling. Plus…it smells awesome!

Enjoy the weekend and remember, lighting yourself on fire hurts, so be careful 🙂
