How to Clean a Char Broil Infrared Grill

Angela LaFollette

Infrared grills can reduce cooking times and may cook foods more thoroughly. The Char-Broil infrared grill heats foods evenly due to a constant heat source. Emitter plates under the grates provide the constant heat needed to cook the food but they can become dirty after a while. The grill grates and plates on the infrared grill should be cleaned after each use to keep them in good condition. If you allow dirt, grease and debris to remain on the grill grates, they may need to be replaced.

  1. Turn the grill burners to high. Close the lid on the gas grill.

  2. Allow the grill to heat for 15 minutes.

  3. Scrub the grill grates with an infrared grill brush.

  4. Turn over the infrared grill brush. Scrub the grill with the metal scraper on the back of the brush.

  5. Allow the grill grates to cool. Remove the grates from the grill.

  6. Brush the emitter plates under the grates with a wire grill brush. Scrape on the plates to remove any hard-to-remove debris.

  7. Replace the grill grates. Spray the infrared grill grates and emitter plates with high-heat cooking oil.
