Getting Grill Ready
The weather is perfect- it’s time to start grilling. If you’re like me, your grill has been sitting outside un-covered for a few months.
The first thing I do is hose off the outside of the grill- this removes most of the larger particles and debris. Then, I fill a bucket with hot, soapy water and begin to hand-wash the outside of the grill.

Carefully wash off the soapy water and hand-dry with a cotton cloth.
