One of the more unpleasant tasks is cleaning the barbie after a summer of outdoor eating. The longer you have left it the worse it will be. There are a few tricks of the trade to make it easier! Buy one of the oven cleaning kits with a bag for the shelves and use this to clean the grill. It really does work, BUT you need to rinse this off very well and dry properly before storing away for the winter.
Before you use it next time there are two things you can do to make it easier to clean. Either rub lemon or oil on the grill before you use it, this helps to stop food sticking and makes it easier to clean food off it.
Or, of course, you can ask us to do it.
