Default On Topic - Cleaning shelves after a Q

I got one of those plastic containers that fits under the bed that was big enough to hold the shelves. Put 1/2 gallon of ammonia and some dish soap; filled with water and the next day just pull 'em out and hose 'em off. Clean as new and no scrubbing or dishpan hands

Sounds like a pretty good idea -- I'm notorious for leaving the racks and bowl in the ECB. It's not that they are that hard to clean it's just they get nasty if they sit. Soaking and rinsing would surely be easier.

Is it really necessary to clean the shelves with cleaners? I have read that some professionals NEVER clean there shleves/bbq's with cleaners. I just heat my shelves up in the firebox, give them a good scrub and use.

Im with john. I never clean the grates.

I just put them in the firebox and let them burn off. Put them in at the end of the cook, close the firebox and open the dampers allte way. After a few mins, brush them with a brass bristle brush to get the crud off while they're in there.


once in a while, when i'm cleaning something else, i'll git them with the hose or pressure washer.

Since I don't like mushrooms much, I don't mind a little green fuzz here and there on the grates. Gives the meat an earthy taste

yeah, and you use lighter fluid to light your coals too... right? And cook over cold, wet, green mesquite.

Seriously, unless your extremely lazy or loaded, it takes me 5 minutes to clean 4 grates. Fill sink with extremely hot water, add a **** load of Dawn which cuts right through the grease, wipe with those plastic scrubber dealies. Like an SOS pad but made from raveled plastic.

Couple minutes, like new.

Works on the Stainless ECB's too. But on both, spray a little spray olive oil or Pam first.

That brings up an interesting thought on how products get there names.

Do you think Dawn was named after a girl who dated alot of "Greasers" in the 50's and found that by applying soap to the "down there" it was easier to clean up?

Now Pam, Pam was known as a loose girl who use to swallow and allow for easy non-sticky clean up.

Am I in the wrong forum with this response?

LOL, maybe Phil will just cut the last half out and throw it in the woodpile :D

If I stuck those grates in the new $500 stainless steel sink to clean them and scratched it all up, I would be up s*it creek at the house. I have always used Pam though (the spray, not the loose girl) but Monday I didn't use anything just to see if the 24 hour soak in ammonia and Dawn would do the trick. Everything just rinsed right off!

Then Dawn and Pam got together and figured how to manage Non-Stick easy clean up, Astro-Glide. Then came along stud duck and things got hard and began to quack.
