BBQ Professional Cleaning

Been looking into having my bbq professionally cleaned. Did not realise these guys charge up to $120. They do come out looking as good as new admittedly.

Does anyone know what products the pros use and where to get them? Was thinking Uline or such. Any advice?

My neighbours just had the guy there to "open it up" for the summer. Two 20-somethings who don't lift a finger. Mommy and Daddy pay but you have to laugh. They'll use it 2x, tops.

I use this stuff and it works great... Depending on how dirty your BBQ is it'll take some scrubbing. If you do it regularly, you can spray this stuff on, and just wipe it off

thanks everyone for the suggestions so far...for some reason I cannot upvote your posts. I do however feel I need something stronger....more commercial strength.

Just open it up and put a pressure washer to it.
Tried that did nothing at all....it is really baked on dry grease that does not come off with anything I have used.

Mine cost something like $180 for a full clean for a moderate sized Weber. He used some industrial strength cleaners along with some hand held polisher tool, and by the time he was done his overalls and face mash were covered in grime. In fact, he discarded his face mask after that.

I think it took him a couple of hours too.

You should check it out. The BBQs come out looking almost brand new after that. It may not be worth it for a cheap BBQ, but if you've spent 4-digit $ on your BBQ, it may be worth it.

I wouldn't want to do that on something I cook my food on. I simply use water, vinegar and a brush (or steel wool) every so often and it does the job fine.

You realize that restaurants use commercial strength cleaners, right?

1. Turn heat to max
2. Allow bbq to run until smoke stops billowing
3. Drink beer, hi-5 wife.

why clean it? i scrape the grill and clean out the bottom of the bbq where all the crud goes but the residue adds to the flavour Face With Stuck-out Tongue And Tightly-closed Eyes
