If you're getting ready to put the barbecue grill away for winter, organization blog Unclutterer suggests leaving the baked-on crust intact on the grill to keep it from rusting.
You still need to wipe down your grill if you're storing it for winter, but if you keep yourself from scrubbing it clean before it gets cold, the coating on the metal grate will ensure no air or water come into contact with it, which keeps it from rusting. Come spring, you can get to the deep cleaning by heating it over an open flame for around ten minutes and then scrubbing the coating off with ease. Photo by Ben Bosma.
