One of the difficult parts of owning a Weber charcoal grill is cleaning one.

Cleaning a Weber charcoal grill means cleaning the exterior lid, the interior lid, the inside of the bowl, the grill grates, and the ash catcher. Here are the detailed steps of how to clean a Weber charcoal grill inside out.

There are three main Weber charcoal grill types.

  2. All purpose dish cloths

  4. Mild glass cleaner
  5. Cleaning gloves

How to Clean Your Weber’s Charcoal Grill Inside Lid Coated Porcelain Enamel

The inside of the lid should have a paint-like black substance also known as non-toxic carbon deposits. It will not hurt you but you need to remove it from the clean grill grates to prevent accumulation. It will also help to improve the quality of those services.

How to Clean the Inside of the Bowl

Step 2: Scrub the insides with water diluted detergent, an old toothbrush and a scouring scrubber for deep cleaning

Step 4: Empty the ash catcher (which is easily removed) and air shutter screens, and clean them with the same detergent solution for peak performance

There is also a 3 blade system that’s attached above the kettle bowl of the grill. You can use it by moving the lever forward and back continuously until all the ash falls into the ash catcher.
