one Barbecue and barbecue
The easiest way is to clean the devices immediately after cooking, since the fat has not yet frozen at this point. Let the barbecue or grill cool down a little: they should still be warm, but no longer scalding hot.
For better cleaning, you will need an iron brush or washcloth. An oven scraper will also work. As a detergent, you can use both a special grilling compound and a simple dishwashing liquid.
Rinse the device with water (preferably a high pressure jet). Then use a brush and wipe off the soot. Do not press too hard, otherwise you will scratch the walls. Turn the brazier over to shake out the dirt. Rinse it again with water and wash the walls with a special tool. Keep in mind that there will always be traces of coal inside, so it makes no sense to rub it to a shine.
If you forget to wash the grill once, nothing bad will happen. But you can’t do this all the time: ash, coals and soot need to be cleaned, otherwise unpleasant odors will appear in the future and the meat will start to burn.
If you take out the ashes and wash the insides is quite simple, then a lot of dirt often sticks to the grate, which takes a long time to clean. To prevent the dishes from burning, the rods should be washed periodically.
Immediately after cooking, leave the grate on the grill or grill for 10 minutes to warm up the leftover food. Then use a special iron barbecue brush. With it, you can easily brush off the stuck pieces. If you don’t have one, then take aluminum foil and roll it into a ball — it will replace a metal brush or sponge. Then rub her bars. In order not to burn yourself, it is better to wear gloves and take the foil with tongs.
After that, you can wash the grate with a regular dishwashing detergent. After cleaning, wipe the grate dry. Try to store it in a place where dampness does not reach, otherwise the accessory may rust. Lubricate the rods with vegetable oil before each use: this way food will stick less.
Skewers on which meat or vegetables were cooked should also be cleaned immediately. If you leave them until the next day, getting rid of fat will be much more difficult. Wait for them to cool down a bit and use one of the methods below.
The method that was described for cleaning the grate is also suitable for washing skewers. It is useful for those who do not have a metal sponge on hand.
Another option to clean the skewers is to simply stick them in the sand. It absorbs fat. After that, it will be enough to wash them under water with the usual dishwashing detergent.
soda and vinegar
This method is suitable for those who like to clean up the next day after a picnic. Take a garbage bag or other bag, put the skewers in it. In any container, mix vinegar and soda in a ratio of 2: 1, pour the resulting liquid into a bag and leave until the morning. After this treatment, the soot will be much easier to move away from the skewers than with normal washing.
Do not leave skewers wet for a long time after cleaning. They may rust.
Washing the dishes after a picnic is not a very pleasant thing, but a necessary thing. However, if all the previous accessories are much easier to wash at once, then plates and glasses can be left for the next day. To make the process of cleaning from grease and dirt easier, do a few simple steps immediately after a picnic. Do not leave the dishes on the table at night, take them to the sink, after removing the remnants of food. Then soak in water with dishwashing liquid added. The dirt will soak overnight, so you don’t have to use extra force to wipe it off.
If you went out into nature and you don’t have running water with detergents, then you can use river or ordinary sand for washing. It perfectly cleans fat, as it has abrasive and absorbent properties.
