Power Washing Propane Gas Grill - Katy TX


I spent the better part of today Saturday June 25, 2016 power washing our Weber propane gas grill. I believe last weekend or the weekend before the steaks that were being grilled caught fire. We put it out with water and saved the steaks. I knew based on the accumulation of meat and marination on the the inside of the grill, I would need to spend the time to power wash it. There is a chemical spray I used one time but after reading up I figured it was potentially toxic. Power wash take off most of the grill dirt. We use this grill several times each week especially during the warm weather months.


The temperature in the shade in back yard today was 93 degrees and the humidity was high as usual. I lost about 4.5 pounds while getting a pretty good workout running the power washer cleaning both the grill and patio tile.  I stopped when the gas ran out in the washer plus I had errands to run. I still have a large area to power washon our driveway. I my have to hire someone after I power wash the the sidewalk into our home. The driveway will take me way too long.


I wrote this post to tell folks to watch the accumulation of crud inside your grill as you could run the risk of a house fire if the grill catches fire.

That is a great idea and probably much quicker than scrubbing...Enjoy the grill now that it is clean.  A

Thanks for sharing the tips on lighting up the gas grill . . . . without  lighting up the grill.

Good luck and success.

This we haven't done. So my husband has a task at power washing ours.

Thanks for sharing your experience. You will want to create a grilling recipes board on Pinterest.

Thanks Bob.  I need to clean mine as well.  Never thought that power washing was an option.  Does it affect the burners?

Thank you for the reminder for people to wash their grill.

HI Bob... I have solved this problem very neatly -- we don't own a grill! (Except maybe for my George Foreman grill, but I do clean it after every use.)

The grill looks good, hopefully you get to relax the rest of the weekend after putting in all of that work.

 You should have showed an after picture, the hot dogs were good last night but I am ready for my steak no red meat last week! yeah!

Posted by Yolanda Cordova-Gilbert about 4 years ago

Bob, I think that is the way to go if you can do it without chemicals.  I am not a fan of using the wire brushes as it could be possible to get some of those residual wires on your meat and consume it.

Wow- good call maybe having someone finish power washing the drive!  That is too hot to work in!!!!!

Thank you for share your personal experiences. Gas grills are a fantastic machine for making delicious recipes. My real estate partner has a fast food restaurant. He bought a new Royal Gourmet 6-Burner Cabinet Gas Grill a few months ago from this website. I went to his restaurant and had dinner with Spicy Pork Skewers, and Grilled Garlic-and-Black-Pepper Shrimp. I am a good lover. Thank you BOB.
