Barbecue-cleaning with less chemicals go green
What helps with the barbecue-cleaning of tough grime and caked on meat on the grill racks-the steam cleaner !
Now how about steaming the racks where we put the meat.
This is always something I tried to avoid in the past. I would wait till the racks cooled down then I would then proceed to clean the racks in my sink using cleaners such as barbecue foam cleaner and other things.
Barbecue-cleaning is now a lot easier because of steam cleaning for the grease on the racks!
My life has become much easier to clean racks,my kitchen and the bathroom using the Steamer-more on this below......
Get a portable steamer and you will thank me
I discovered the portable steamer!
Steamers are still not used much in the United States but they are popular in Europe.
I like them because I can clean with steam and not have to use harsh chemicals-at most you use a minimal of chemical detergents.Its good for your health.
How it works-you fill the steamer with water you plug it in to an outlet and then a few minutes later you have a powerful cleaner and germ killer-Steam! Thats what they use in the hospital to sterilize surgical equipment!
I use the steamer here as my main portable steamer I use to clean my grill racks:
This is the best cleaner for your home and bbq chores after you steamYou just take paper towels to wipe out. So you killed the bacteria and germs in your bathroom in your sink on the floor with steaming water two-way hospitals sterilize their equipment.
You will actually save money by using the steamer because you will no longer be buying nasty chemicals
I also have the high power model at home to take care of my bathroom and kitchen-its great before guests come over. The steamer and a roll of paper towels to wipe up.
No more scrubbing-and No more steel wool pads for me-once you use a steamer you will not go back! Barbecue-cleaning is also speeded up with the portable steamer and a good barbecue scrub metal brush from weber accessories.
Also I use Brillo or sos before I steam away the grill racks if there are stubborn pieces of stuck meat on the grill rack…
Also a nice roll of paper to take the grime off-this is best done when the grill cools the warm after all the coals are out.
I recommend recruiting the guests who are still able to walk after the feast to help out-it's the least they can do for the great food you have cooked!

For the crud that will not come off with the steamer or brush -- I then use Brillo pads like sos and let it soak in the sink for an hour then come back with the steamer

Your Easy Secret TO Barbecue-cleaning
My Barbecue-Cleaning Tips:
Always use your flame proof mitts and metal tongs to pick up hot coals! Never go digging with your hands into the coal ashes.
Warning: hot coals can last in a pile of coal ashes for days! Always be cautious!
After your barbecue has cooled down its important to clean out the charcoal tray once the charcoals have totally burned out,
It may take several days for the last charcoal to totally burn out-So after 3-4 days take a shovel and thrown out the ashes wearing the protective mitts I recommend. Look thru the charcoal residual powder to make sure there are no left-over hot coals while you are shoveling out the hot coals. I have used a metal broom handle to stir thru the charcoal residual ash to make sure there are no hot coals left.
I used to let the coal ashes pile up to the top because I was to lazy to clean the smoker and grill.
I now regularly clean the charcoal pan by dumping out the coals three days after I last grilled. It is very important to throw out the ashes and not let them pile up!
IF there is some left over grime I will clean the pan with soap and water in the sink. I also use a weber metal brush and scraper with some Brillo and Sos soap pads to help clean the insides of the smoker and grill.
