    If its nasty and after winter it usually is a spray with that foaming oven cleaner and then a hose or water blast sorts it out .

    Don't have to clean mine very much.
    Got one of those Family Qs from Weber.
    Pretty easy to maintain and doesn't rust.
    Roasting a leg of wild pork on it now.

    I use Mr Muscle at the beginning of the season.

    Spray it on the plates and leave for 30mins then hose it off, wipe dry and re-oil then season the plates over the heat.

    Then after each BBQ session I scrub the plate clean while still warm, wipe clean with paper towels, re-oil and let cool.

    Cheers
    Pete

    We use rice bran oil.
    After each barbie run a scraper over it then wipe with a paper towel. Good to go the next night or weekend

    If it hasn't been done in a long time or it's second hand i take the entire thing apart, scrub the frame down with hot soapy water then waterblast it. Oven cleaner on all the cooking surfaces, scrub with a wire brush and repeat until i'm happy with the surface, rince down with a vinegar solution followed by water then reassemble. Get the thing really, really hot, apply several applications of oil until it's drunk up all it can take and let it come back down in temperature, when it's cold i'll give it one final going over with oil.
    After each use i usually just scrub it down with a brush give it a light re season.

    Damn you guys have some complicated methods. Mrs D, turn the BBQ on as hot as you can make it. Quoting VC get it super gazillion hot. Then when it is as hot as the Hobbs of hell hit it with a jet of high pressure water from a garden hose. That blows all the crap off in one quick blast. By the way don't do it toward the house or all of the crap will go all over the paint work.

    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Yep Rushy, heat it up nice and hot and tip a bottle of Waikato over it, works wonders and gets rid of the Waikato at the same time!
