The fact that it’s cold outside is no excuse for serving pan-fried burgers today. The grill is king, even when you have to freeze your sorry ass off. But once the burgers are done, there’s no good reason for you to freeze your butt any longer than necessary to clean it: Use a good grill brush.
If you brush while the grill’s still a little hot, you can knock off most of the nasty stuff before it has a chance to harden on (like two-part epoxy). With a little help from the hose, you’re done in a jiffy.
You can find a good brush at most big-box stores, or you can even find passable ones at the grocery store from time to time. The one pictured is from Char-Broil and runs $8, but street pricing starts around $6.
