Daily Maintenance and Cleaning of Kamado Grill
Maintaining and cleaning your Kamado grill daily ensures it performs optimally and lasts for many years. Here are the steps and tips for daily maintenance and cleaning:

Tools and Supplies Needed
· Grill brush (with stainless steel bristles)
· Soft cloth or sponge
· Mild dish soap
· Warm water
· Ash tool or scoop
· Paper towels or dry cloth
· Cooking oil (optional for grates)
Daily Maintenance Steps

1.Cool Down Completely

· Ensure the grill is completely cool before starting any cleaning or maintenance. Cleaning a hot grill can be dangerous and may damage the grill.

2.Remove Ashes

· Open the bottom vent and use an ash tool or scoop to remove ashes from the bottom of the grill. Dispose of the ashes in a metal container to avoid fire hazards.

3.Clean the Grates

· Remove the cooking grates and use a grill brush to scrape off any food residue.
· For stubborn residues, soak the grates in warm, soapy water for 10-15 minutes, then scrub and rinse thoroughly.
· Optionally, lightly coat the grates with cooking oil to prevent rusting and make future cleaning easier.

4.Wipe Down the Interior

· Use a soft cloth or sponge dampened with warm, soapy water to wipe down the interior of the grill, focusing on removing any grease or food splatters.
· Rinse with a clean, damp cloth to remove any soap residue.

5.Check the Gasket

· Inspect the gasket for any signs of wear or damage. Clean it gently with a damp cloth. Replace the gasket if it shows significant wear to maintain a good seal.

6.Clean the Exterior

· Wipe down the exterior of the grill with a soft cloth or sponge and mild soapy water.
· Dry the exterior thoroughly with a clean, dry cloth to prevent water spots and rust.

7.Empty the Ash Catcher

· If your Kamado grill has an ash catcher, empty it regularly to ensure proper airflow and maintain cleanliness.

8.Inspect the Vents

· Check the top and bottom vents for any obstructions or buildup. Clean them if necessary to ensure proper airflow and temperature control.

9.Store Accessories Properly

· Store any grilling accessories, such as cooking grates and tools, in a dry, clean place to prevent rust and damage.
By following these daily maintenance and cleaning steps, your Kamado grill will remain in excellent condition, ready to deliver delicious meals every time you use it.
