Q: Dear Dr. BBQ:
I once read that a good way to clean the grill grates is to spray them with oven cleaner, put them in a plastic garbage bag for a few days and then just rinse them off. True?
A: Hi Stephen,
Yes, that will work very well. Just be sure to rinse them really really well, and then cook them at high heat for a while before putting any meat on them. They will be like new so you”ll want to oil them the first time you use them again too. I prefer to just get them good and hot and them brush them thoroughly. This way they stay seasoned and the food doesn”t stick to them.
