    Cleaning the MB560

    I couldn't find any topics on how best to clean a grill/smoker. Since I recently bought a MB560, is there a better way to clean it other than the manual's recommended way?

    The manual says:
    • Clean the grill and grates with mild detergent (it doesn't say to use any water so I'm guessing wiping the detergent off with a damp towel).
    • Clean the ash tray and bottom of the hopper after every use (I'm thinking of dumping the cold ashes and cleaning with a Shop Vac).
    Are the grates better cleaned hot or cold?

    After cleaning the grates, what's the opinion of spraying them with canola oil?

    Here is the basic process I follow:

    I also use this to clean the grates and it works great.

    I don’t think the detergent idea is going to be very effective unless you dunk the grates into water and soap and clean them properly as they get dirty very quickly. Similarly, the vacuum is probably unneeded as the bucket essentially catches all of the ash so you can dispose of it once it has cooled.

    Essentially, dump ash bucket, clean grease collector, scrape off manifold, clean greasy areas with paper towels, and spray grates and interior of cook chamber with oil. You want to keep spraying after every cook to prevent any potential rust. The Grill Rescue brush works well for deeper cleans.

      Thanks! That's some easy to follow info, and I'll be getting the Grill Rescue brush very soon.
