What is the best way to clean old grill grates and the inside of the lid? I think I remember reading spraying with oven cleaner and sealing up in a garbage bag and leaving them out in the sun for a day. Does this work? is there a better way?
Ive been known to nail my grills to a sawhorse and go at them with a wire wheel on my grinder... works real fast
