This Independence Day, step up your grill master techniques with a clean barbecue. Nobody wants a rack of ribs with last year’s grill gunk on them. Before you fire up the barbecue, make sure your grill is clean and that any gas hoses and connections are secure. Not only will cleaning prevent unwanted flare-ups, but it also extends the life of the grill by reducing rust buildup.

No matter what kind of grill you have, invest in a grill brush or other coarse cleaning brush, remove the grates and metal plates beneath them, and soak them in hot soapy water for 5 to 10 minutes. Then scrub the grates hard and rinse by spraying them with the hose.

Cover the area where the grates usually go with foil, and use a stiff grill brush to clean grime from the hood and inside walls. Use a cleaner specifically designed for your grill’s surface (e.g., stainless steel, porcelain, or cast iron), and reassemble all parts.
