Steps to deep clean the grill

The good thing about ceramic grills like Kamado is that they really look like a self-cleaning oven. All you really need to do is heat it up, let it sit, and then brush it again. This will not only help remove any burnt items, but it will also sanitize the grill.

Here are the steps:

1.Light a fire at the bottom of the grill

2.Place the heat deflector rack with the deflector on it. Add a grill or other cooking surface

3.Close the lid and adjust to 650º F or 700° F

4.Heating for 30 minutes to an hour

5.Open the vents and cool completely (overnight is best)

6.Remove accessories, grills and heat deflector racks

7.Remove charcoal

8.Carefully remove the fire ring and fire box

9.Clear the remaining ashes

10.Brush everything with the bristles: inside the grill, ceramic parts, grill, etc.

11.Use a store vacuum cleaner to remove the ashes, or use a spoon or damp cloth to remove it

12.Reassemble the ceramic and place the deflector

13.Spray the grill with cooking spray

14.If necessary, replace the grill and wipe the outside of the grill

The clean, shiny grill is ready for another season of delicious cooking. This should be done at least twice a year, depending on how often you use Kamado Grill. I also recommend that you check the straps on the grill during deep cleaning, but we will cover it in another article. Now, take a step back and admire the clean grill and wait for more barbecues and smoking!
