How to Clean Your BBQ Grill

Fall is quickly turning into winter, but that’s no reason to pack away the grill!  There’s still plenty of time to get together with friends and family, watch a game or two and grill up a delicious meal.  And with S.O.S®, clean-up is quick and easy.

How to clean your grill@tab62 –

Here’s an oh-so-simple grilled kabob recipe to get you in the mood.  All it takes are a few vegetables, your choice of protein and an easy-to-make sauce.  Simple to prepare and delicious!


  • Vegetable spray
  • 1/3 cup teriyaki stir fry sauce
  • 3 tablespoons of honey
  • 10 ounces beef sirloin*, cubed
  • 1 medium zucchini, halved lengthwise and cut into ½ inch slices
  • 1 cup button mushrooms, halved
  • 1 small red onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into 2-inch slices
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Metal skewers**

*Use chicken or shrimp, if desired.

**If using wood skewers, soak in water for 20 minutes before putting kabobs on the grill.


    1. Lightly coat grate with grilling spray. Preheat gas grill to medium heat or use Kingsford® Charcoal for Charcoal grills
    2. Mix stir-fry sauce and honey in a bowl; set aside.
    3. Combine garlic powder, ground ginger and ground black pepper in a separate bowl.
    4. Arrange beef cubes and cut vegetables on skewers; evenly sprinkle with spice mix.
    5. Add skewers to grill for two to three minutes. Flip and brush with teriyaki-honey sauce using a pastry brush. Grill for an additional two to three minutes. Flip again and brush sauce on kabobs. Grill for two more minutes.

Enjoy your kebabs with a side of chips and dip, jambalaya or any of your favorite dishes.

And of course there’s no need to fear the burnt sauce crusted on your grate after grilling. If burning and brushing just isn’t enough to do the trick, then look no further than S.O.S steel wool soap pads to clean those burnt on messes:

      1. Remove the grill grate (after it’s cooled).
      2. Wet an S.O.S® Steel Wool Soap Pad or S.O.S® Grill Mate
      3. Scrub the grate until grime loosens.
      4. Rinse well with water.

Easy!  Cleaning your grill post-get together ensures it’s ready to go for your next meal.

  1. We love BBQ season, because it brings our family together. To make it even more enjoyable this summer, we thought it would be beneficial to learn about how to properly clean a grill. It is good to know that one should start by removing the grill grate after it is cooled. I am glad to know that one should scrub the grate until the grime loosens. We will have to try this, thanks for the instructions.
