FAQ Subject: How do I clean porcelain grills?

Hi Smoky... First of all, I would just like to congratulate you on a totally awesome and helpful site! Not only is it helpful, but it is so easy to navigate! Keep it up!

Anyway, on to my question; I just purchased a shiny, new porcelain cooking grill for by propane grill. Now, I realize it is not going to stay looking new forever, but I really don't like the idea of taking a wire/brass brush to it. What do you recommend for cleaning them (porcelain grills)?

Thank you,
Wendy Rose

Hi Wendy,

Thanks for the kind words.

My best recommendation is not to mess them up. Although porcelain is my last choice for grill grates, even they respond to proper technique. First, allow the grates to come to proper temperature - HOT. Second, put the food on and LEAVE IT ALONE. It will seize the grate at first, but by and by, when it is ready, turn loose. Turn it then and you will leave nothing sticking to the grates. The same applies to the second side. Third, don't put gooey, sticky, sugary sauces/glazes, etc, on the meat while the temperature is high.

If by chance you do allow something to stick, wait until the grate cool then put them into a plastic garbage bag with 1/2-1 C. of household ammonia, tie up the bag and leave it overnight. Everything on the grates will easily wash off in cold water. CAUTION: Never mix ammonia and bleach.

Turn left at the first star.

Have fun,

The Barbecue Store
