Answer:

To clean the Wolf Outdoor Gas Grill

It is not necessary to clean the ceramic briquettes after every grilling. They will burn themselves clean during the next cooking cycle.

For periodic cleaning:

If desired, operate the grill on high for 10–12 minutes to burn the briquettes clean.

Allow briquette trays to cool.

Remove trays from the grill, shake off loose debris, and wipe trays clean.

For rust on grill grates, follow the cleaning recommendations below depending on cleaning solution preference:

  • Vinegar and Salt
    1. Mix 2 cups vinegar and 1 cup salt.
    2. Place grill grates in a large plastic bag.
    3. Cover grates with solution, tie bag shut, and soak 8 hours.
    4. Wipe off rust with a cloth.
    5. Rinse with water.
    6. Dry thoroughly.
  • Baking Soda
    1. Brush grill grates with a soft brush to remove most rust.
    2. Put the grate on the grill and sprinkle with baking soda.
    3. Turn on the grill to allow the baking soda to bubble and remove the rust.
    4. Turn off grill and let cool.
    5. Brush racks again with a soft brush.
  • Sand Paper
    1. Wrap a piece of sand paper around each rung of the rusty grill grate.
    2. Rub up and down to remove rust.
    3. Proceed with caution as this will scratch the grate surface.
  • After Each Use
    1. Use a wire brush after each use to remove rust.
    2. Take the grate off of the grill and use a steel wire brush.
    3. Flip the grate over and repeat.
    4. Brush between each metal rung.
    5. Wipe off with an old rag to remove residual rust.
