Title:
Self Cleaning Grill Fire
Kind Code:
A1


Abstract:
Currently there is only two ways to clean a barbeque grill: One way is with messy solvents or cleaners that need to be sprayed on and scrubbed. The problem with this procedure is the labor, the mess, and the removal of the “flavor” of the grill. The other cleaning method is to heat the grill up and scrub with a wire brush, however, because the grill never gets enough heat to bake away the residue, this procedure only partially cleans the grill and does not remove all of the old food remnants. Additionally it is a waste of propane on gas grills.

Claims:
What is claimed is:

1. The messiest grill will be completely clean with no effort or mess at all. The pan is simply put under the grill and lit. After the flame burns out, dispose of the pan and begin grilling.

Description:

Self Cleaning Grill Fire is a flammable solid mixture of hickory, oak, and/or cherry wood chips, lighter fluid, and wax in a pan that is placed under the cooking portion of a grill and lit. The entire pan becomes one large flame that burns for approximately 5 minutes. The flame cleans the grill in the same fashion as a self-cleaning oven, it gets hot enough to bake away any food or residue from the grill.

Additionally, the disposable pan captures any ash during the process. After burning, the grill is clean and ready for barbequing without the use of any chemical cleaning agents. Additionally, it has been “Seasoned” from the wood fire.
