For those of us who have not stopped using our grills over the winter, don't forget to do some serious spring cleaning.

Thanks for these tips! I have a question for you:


I bought DH a fancy-shmancy gas grill, a few years ago, and it came with a supply of ceramic briquets. For the life of me, I can't find ceramic briquets, anywhere; so, DH has been lining the bed with a layer of regular charcoal briquets. What I've noticed is that we end up replacing the burner thingy every year, because it gets so darned hot and starts deteriorating. Not that it's a huge expense, just annoying. But, are ceramic briquets not made anymore?

We have a store here that deals with grills and other gas related items like home heating items.

I feel inept--I have a homemade grill and a bag of charcoal that I light with a wad of newspaper and a wooden match. No maintenance so it works for me.

Have you ever used one of those griddle cleaning stones?
