    I used a razor blade & a spatula. I scraped a few cups of grease/grim. Question is, when cleaned, is it actually working better? More efficent?

    Grease and grime on the inside is a fire hazard. On the outside, it’s an eyesore. Soot on the inside cover retains heat. I periodically remove remove the drip tray and replace the insert and clean grease and grime from below the burners to minimize the chance of a fire inside the grill. I clean the outside with stainless steel cleaner after the grill cools. I leave the solids from smoke on the inside cover. I also regularly check hoses and connections. I replace anything that looks worn or damaged at the beginning of the season. Good maintenance helps the grill last longer.

    I can’t answer that but when I clean my gas Weber it doesn’t produce food that tastes the same. I’m a believer that, like a cast iron pan, cleaning a grill that doesn’t experience flare ups is a waste in many ways
    That’s just my opinion.

    i scrape mine with a dollar store putty knife , i have the enameled cast iron grills with flat tops, then burnish it firmly with a crumpled tight brown paper bag.

    also i use a alcohol soaked qtip to draw out the soot from the spider screens

    sometimes i will use a vinegar soaked microfiber cloth to put the shine back to the top, i think when i bbq in the rain some solids or something cook on
