A pair of gloves
A face mask
Steel bristle brush
Baking soda (optional)
Start with the grill
First of all we are going to start by cleaning the grill, from which we will have to remove the grease and rust that may have formed during cooking. So, follow these steps:
To remove the fat, heat the barbecue as if you were going to use it for cooking, and let the remaining fat burn on the grill (for this you can use the embers that are left over after cooking).
Once hot, use a brush with steel bristles, which will help to remove the remains of rust, being very careful with the detachment of the bristles.
Use vinegar to spray it on the grill grates, making sure to remove all the rust. Then wipe the remains of the vinegar and rust mixture with a damp cloth to remove any remains that may have stuck.
In the event that you find it difficult to remove the remains, you can use a little baking soda, sprinkling it on the affected area and leaving it exposed to heat, to have its effect.
The next thing is to clean the barbecue
While the grill dries, you have to take over the barbecue. This takes a little more work, and for safety, you should put on gloves and a mask.
The first of all will be to rinse the barbecue with hot water, filling at least half of the barbecue. This will help loosen large food residues. You only have to rinse it once, with the water well boiled.
Taking advantage of the hot water on the barbecue, use a wide spatula to remove the remains of the food from the bottom and sides of the barbecue. Once all the remains are removed, pour the water into a bucket and then pour it down the toilet.
Next, proceed to moisten some paper towels and clean the surface of your barbecue. You will notice how the paper towel is impregnated with a dark layer, that is that you are cleaning it well. You can also use a degreaser that you have at home.
Now, you will apply a layer of grease, using vegetable oil, with a spray mist. Use a cloth or napkin to scrub this layer well, and you will have your barbecue ready.
