Basic Cleaning Steps

  • Use a grill brush to remove loose, flaky carbon build-up inside the lid and to clean the cooking grates.
  • Use a putty knife to remove debris from the Flavorizer bars.
  • Use a wire brush to clean the burner ports. Brush across¬†the burner tubes, not down the length of the tubes.
  • Use a putty knife to scrape debris inside the firebox down into the drip pan/catch tray.
  • Clean the catch tray and replace the foil drip pan.
  • Visually inspect the condition of the gas hose and check connections for leaks with a soapy solution.
