HOW TO CLEAN YOUR BARBEQUE
In most of the country barbeque grills are covered up during the cold winter months. But, here in the “Valley of the Sun” barbecuing is a year round happening. It is very important to keep your grill clean as possible.
Always look for special instructions from the grill’s manufacturer. Allow the barbeque sufficient time to cool down before you begin.
- Grill must be in place and out of the way, heat barbeque to maximum temperature. If you have a gas grill turn the temperature up. If you own a charcoal grill it needs to be heated so the coals are a red hot.
- With the lid in place, leave it heat up for 15-20 minutes. This gets rid of the grime and makes the grill cleaning easier.
- When barbeque cools down, scrub the grill with a steel brush. When grill is cool enough, remove the cooking racks.
- With racks in hand use soapy water to clean the grates. Never use an abrasive cleaner and check your Green Goddess barbeque section for specialty items designed to help you clean your grill.
- Thoroughly rinse the racks and allow to dry. Apply vegetable oil lightly to your grill grates to help prevent rusting.
- Barbeques usually have trays that collect grease and ash. Using warm soapy water is the best method for cleaning the drip tray as well.

With summer sneaking up on us, this is the perfect time to make sure your garden and landscape are prepared for our summer heat.
Weeds grow fast this time of year, but they are easier to control. So, weed prevention should be at the top of your list.
Keep up with spring planting and start planting for summer. Check your watering system. As days get hotter, more water is needed.
Now is the perfect time to add fertilizer, while mornings and evenings are still cool.
Here is a list of plants that work well this time of year to start your garden off:
- Bush beans
- Summer squash
- Winter squash
