How to Clean a Gas Grill with Minimal Effort

Once you try this simple trick for removing caked-on food and grease from your gas grill, you’ll never dread this chore again.

You will need

  • Heavy-duty aluminum foil
  • A grill brush

Step 1 Scrape with foil Immediately after you’re finished cooking, make a ball of aluminum foil and scrub the still-warm grill rack surface with it, taking care not to burn your fingers.

Step 2 Lay down foil Place a piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil across the grill, close the lid, and turn the heat on high.

Step 3 Heat Let the grill heat for about 15 minutes.
