2. Clean Your Grill
When was the last time that you gave your grill a thorough cleaning? If you've been grilling regularly throughout the summer, it's time to freshen up your grill for the fall cooking season. The best time to clean your grill racks and grates is shortly after you've finished cooking. Use a stiff brush to remove food particles, debris, oils and marinades. Taking the time to give your grill a thorough cleaning will allow you to best preserve the flavor of your food and prolong the useful life of your grill.
Even masters of the grill can learn something new by taking a hands-on cooking class.
