Q: How to clean the inside of the grill?
A: 1 - Always perform the 5 minute minimum burn off, then allow the grill to cool.

2 - Remove the burners and safely place away from grill. Protect Rear Infrared Rotisserie Burner by masking and other means to ensure burner tiles do not get wet.

3 - Use a grease cleaner, such as 409 or orange cleaner, and paper towels to remove the majority of the grease. 

     a) For baked on grease, use either Barkeepers Friend or Soft Scrub, using a damp soft cloth and rubbing only in the direction of the grain. Wipe with clean damp cloth. 

     b) Alternatively, spray inside of firebox, hood and grilling grates with oven cleaner, such as Easy Off (Follow product instructions). Rinse inside of grill with water.  Dry with towels. Stubborn grease stains can be removed using #a above.

4 - Grates can also be cleaned with soap and water or placed in a dishwasher.

**NOTE:  Do not allow the infrared burners to get wet at all.  Water on the infrared burner tiles will ruin them.

 How to clean the ceramic plates?
1) Never subject the ceramic plates to water or any other liquid, as doing so will permanently weaken and damage them, requiring replacement.

2) Never remove the ceramic plates from the steel housing. The ceramic tiles are not replaceable. The complete burner assembly must be replaced if necessary

3) Shake out through the burner venturi (pipe) as much ash as you can that has settled inside of the burner.

4) If any of the holes in the ceramic plate are clogged, use a small twist drill bit (#57 or smaller diameter) or stiff wire to clean out each hole individually. 
    **CAUTION** Take care not to enlarge a hole or break the ceramic.

5) If the burner goes "boom" during operation, there is a crack in the ceramic that allows flame to suck into the can below the ceramic plate and ignites the unburned gas. This is an indication that you must replace the burner.

How to clean the outside of the grill?
For basic cleaning we recommend grease cleaner, such as 409 or orange cleaner, and then finish with a stainless steel polish (from the grocery store or home improvement center). Always go with the direction of the grain when wiping or rubbing.

For removal of stains, spots and tarnishes we recommend Bar Keepers Friend or Soft Scrub (Follow instructions carefully).  Use a soft cloth and be sure to apply with the grain of the stainless steel (not cross-grain).  Once completed use a stainless steel polish.
