In honor of #NationalBarbequeMonth, here’s our favorite tip to keep your grill clean…

USE RAW ONIONS!

STEP 1: Cut a raw onion in half.
STEP 2: Rub the onion, cut side down, across the hot grill grate. (Use a grill fork so that your hand is a safe distance away from the heat. This only works when the grill is still hot.) You can dip the onion in vegetable oil if it does not slide smoothly.
STEP 3: Repeat and watch the gritty grime clean right off!

The greatest thing about this technique is the onion acts as a natural seasoning on your grill, instead of using harmful chemicals found in some cleaning solutions!

Happy grilling!
