Grill Cleaning and Safety During the Summer!

A grill/grate surface should always be pre-sprayed before use with non-stick food spray or pre-moistened cleaning wipe (vegetable oil). After cooking you should always close the lid on the grill and continue cooking on high for an addition five plus minutes so that the remaining residue is reduced to ashes and always let the grill cool down before scrubbing with a wire brush. Most importantly during the heat of summer you should always use clean grills. Don't be in a rush to cook those burgers and dogs because you need to let the grill/grate surface heat up sufficiently to eliminate potential bacteria prior to cooking.
