Here are options for you!
I use mine in the summer just about every single day! When done grilling, I turn up the heat and blast it for a few minutes at 500+ turns any residue to dust and easier to clean once cooled down.
we use a charcoal grill so we use a stiff wire brush we find at HOme Depot or even Walmart in the garden/grilling area. Or you can use a large piece of aluminum foil balled up to clean it as well..
Thanks I will try that.
