How to restore your Stainless BBQ
Here's a 3 year old grill in desperate need of cleaning. It
was located near a pool in a vacation complex and was highly used.
Although it had not been maintained on a regular basis, with some elbow
grease we got it looking and performing like new again.
AFTER: Inside cleaned with
The stainless steel warming rack and stainless grills were removed
sprayed with Barbecue Oil Lift in a sink. (This Made in BC
non-toxic and biodegradable.) We let the oil lift
penetrate a couple
minutes, then scrubbed the surfaces with a
metal kitchen scrubbie.
It took a few applications and rinses
but the results were worth it.
Note: if you have cast iron grills you should
not use a metal scrubber on
them as you risk destroying their finish.
AFTER: We recommend using the
Heavy-Duty One-Step Cleaner/Polisher
by Jackson Grills *in the direction of the grain*
There is a buildup of grease and surface residues on the stainless steel
It's important to note that this is surface discoloration only. This image
illustrates the quality of the stainless steel used on this Canadian Made
Napoleon Prestige natural gas bbq. Had this been a cheap depot store grill,
cabinet doors would likely be pitted and corroded through, beyond
cleaning. (Not to mention they would probably have fallen off by now.)
We removed the handle on the cabinet
doors before cleaning them so we
didn't have to work around them.
We applied the Stainless
Steel cleaner with a scotch
in the *direction of the grain* on the
stainless door. It was then rinsed
and polished up. Cast aluminum end caps were touched up with
high temp bbq paint after cleaning.
The inside of the grill cavity was scraped out with putty knives and
thoroughly cleaned. If you regularly maintain your bbq it will extend its
life and will prevent you from having to do a major overhaul like this one.
