Gas grills are a tradition of summer cooking. Using a gas grill for summertime cooking can save your household money because of the reduced need for home cooling to counteract a hot indoor stove. Over the span of a summer grilling season, the cooking surface of the gas grill will need to be cleaned before and after each use so that the grilling surface delivers the best cooking as well as the best flavor for your favorite grilled foods.
Clean the grilling surface with a grill brush or an ordinary wire brush before you ignite the grill for cooking. Sweep the brush in an upward motion across the cooking surface of the grill. Use a piece of fresh aluminum foil on the grilling racks for extra cleanliness to prevent a stale grilled taste, which comes from baked-on and caked-on ash. Before turning the flame off, brush the grill in the same upward motion to loosen any baked-on and caked-on food particles left from your cooking.
Leave the flame on a low setting for approximately five minutes after you remove the food from the grill. Before turning the flame off, brush the grill in the same upward motion to loosen any baked-on and caked-on food particles. Leaving the flame burning allows the excess grease and fat from meats to run off into the drip pan of the grill.
Spray the cooking surface of the grill with cooking oil to prevent food particles from settling and sticking to the grill. Spraying the grill with cooking oil loosens food particles. Remove as many of the food particles as you can after spraying the grill, and when you next use the grill, allow time for food particles to burn off.
