Why Clean Your Charcoal Kettle and Lid?
Cleaning the grit and grime from the inside of your charcoal kettle and lid is vital to maintaining the long-term health of your grill.
When you grill or smoke meat, grease and soot is deposited everywhere inside your kettle. These deposits form a sticky grime making opening and closing the lid vent difficult. And if lid grease and scale flakes and falls onto your food your cook will suffer.
Plus, when BBQ sauce, apple cider, fats, grease and other drippings from your food collect at the bottom of the bowl your kettle vent will become stuck and eventually will not open.
Don't Use Abrasive Tools to Clean Your Kettle
Many grilling authorities offer tips for cleaning your charcoal kettle. These usually involve a grill brush, wire brush, steel wool or putty knife to dislodge the grit and grime buildup. This is NOT a good idea. Use of abrasive tools most certainly will scratch your kettle, remove the factory baked-on porcelain enamel coating and subject your kettle to rust, which can shorten the useful life of your grill
Kettle Scrape™ is the only non-abrasive tool specifically designed to clean your kettle and not scratch the porcelain coating.
