How to Clean an Outdoor Grill
Cooking outside on the grill is a great summer-time activity that many people enjoy. When the weather cooperates, cooking out (or having a barbecue) can be done several times each week. There is just something about grilling food that makes it taste better. Whether you are a fan of charcoal grills for their sense of tradition and distinct flavor, or you prefer gas grills for their ease of use and quick start-up time, there is one thing in common you both must deal with at some point or another: cleaning the grill. After using your grill several times, it is often not enough to just scrape it with a hard wire brush. There are many store brand cleaners that can aid you with the task of cleaning the grill, but most of these contain toxic chemicals that you don't want anywhere near your food, your skin, your eyes, or your lungs. There is an easy way to clean your grill using baking soda, and this will save you money, as well as helping you to avoid the harsh store bought cleaners.
