How to Clean Your Traeger

Posted by Mary M. on February 27, 2013

Your Traeger grill is a beautiful piece of machinery and it's important to make sure she shines like one. With all the meals you've grilled, your Traeger has earned quite the layer of charred debris. We know that no one knows how to keep her shining bright better than you, Traeger Nation. So here are some of your and our best tips for how to remove all of that built-up gunk.

1. If you're the organized/disciplined/planner-type you probably just use a brass-bristled brush to scrape the grate after each time you use it. Like the old adage says, "A stitch in time saves nine." Or in this case, "A brushing each time saves some sweat and frantic scraping...nine days later."

2. For the rest of us, you let your grate gunk build up until it looks something like this:

Right there are several days-worth of hard-earned crispy barbecue bits or the proof of the rack of 3-2-1 Baby Back Ribs that you just knocked out of the park. If this is the status of your grill, it may need a little bit more help. The easiest way to clean it is to take the temperature to High. Once the charred pieces are hot and crunchy, dip a brass-bristled brush or a clean cotton rag clasped in tongs in water. Brush this over the bars several times, redipping in the water and repeating as necessary.

Gradually take the temperature of the Traeger down and then shut it off.  The high heat combined with the water creates steam that helps loosen all of that burnt mess. This tip is an excellent chemical-free way to get that grate pretty close to lookin' new.

3. If your grill is in an even worse state, then you may need a more serious game plan. One of the members of the Traeger Nation suggested putting the grill grate and 1/2 cup of ammonia in a large garbage bag and leaving it outside overnight. In the morning, rinse with water and all those impossible pieces will rinse away.

Let us know if you discover or know of any other tricks to keep your Traeger clean and smoking like a dream!

I've just been putting it into my self-cleaning...the super heat turns everything to ash and I find it on the bottom of the oven. A wet paper towel and it all is gone!!

I have found that cutting down a couple of aluminum pans to fit under the rack makes for keeping the grill quite clean. I get them in bulk at Costco. I replace the pans every time I vacuum out the bottom and fire pit (which seems to be weekly). I also replace the foil lining at the same time. These pans save all the grease from making it's way into the bucket.

I purchased a Grill Daddy  from bed, bath, and beyond. The handle holds water. After a grilling session  and while the grill is still hot,I just scrub with my grill daddy and it takes less than a minute to clean the grate. Fast an easy and always clean.

If you make a lot more than your state's median income level then you could possibly only qualify for the chapter 13 filing that could mandate that you just payback some of your financial situation before they can be discharged.
