Grilling is the ultimate summer cooking experience, but no matter how many times you’ve hit the grill in recent memory, we bet a little refresher is in order before the season really gets underway. Here are our top five rules for the grill.

A Clean Grill is a Happy Grill

Treat your grill just like any other cooking surface — give it a good cleaning before and after you cook. Scrubbing and oiling the grill grates not only protects the grates but creates a nonstick surface for cooking. Remember, a hot grill makes for easier cleaning (as any of the stuck-on food bits become brittle and easier to scrape off) but if your grill really needs a deep clean, preheat the grill then turn it off while you scrub and oil.
