How to Clean Grill Grates With GP66 Miracle Cleaner

Greasy grills are dangerous and can become a possible fire hazard. The buildup causes eye-popping flare-ups. Sometimes, the slight flare can burst into a fire. We must clean the build up. 

Please do not panic. With these quick tips, your grill will be ready to go for the summer.  From reading the below info, your food will taste better, and you can cook with ease. The tips apply to smokers, grills, and other cooking devices. 


1.) Remove the grill grates and set them aside

2.) A lot of grease and food particles may collect in the grill interior. Spray GP66 full strength inside the grill. Then, wait 5-10 minutes before scrubbing inside the grill with a green scrubbing pad. If needed, use a knife or metal spatula to scrape the sides of the grill.  

Smokers need to be cleaned frequently.  They have fireboxes that accumulate ash and grease; this can turn into a severe fire. Be sure clean the fire box fully. we recommend using GP66 and a scrub pad. Do not dump a lot of water in the fire-pot. Smoker components tend to be sensitive.  

3.) If you have a gas grill, the burner tubes get clogged. The burner tubes may get this brownish color. Burn tubes distribute flames through their portholes to provide even heat throughout the grill for excellent grilling.

Use GP66 and a nylon or steel wire brush to clean the small holes on the burner tubes. Be sure to brush from the center of the tube outward, moving sideways 

4.) Spray GP66 on the grill grates, or better pour GP66 in a large container, large enough to fit the grates, and let the grates soak for 15-30 minutes. Come back to it and scrub using one of those long-handled stainless steel grill brushes.  A thick green scrub pad works too. 

5.) Thoroughly rinse with potable (fresh) water and re-apply if necessary. 

Extra tip for grills and ovens: Warm them up first before using GP66. Be sure to include the rack or grill grates. The heat expands molecules allowing cleaning to become more manageable. Once the grates are warm, spray gp66 and let sit 5-10 minutes before scrubbing.  Always be sure to rinse with potable (fresh) water.
