It's almost that time of year again, but that doesn't mean you can't get a head start on the action. The grilling action, that is. After all, when it comes to grilling, any time is a good time--just sometimes the weather doesn't cooperate. But with sunnier days ahead, it is time to roll out the grill. Which also means it's time to clean it.

No matter how much grime has collected on the grill over the winter, it will only get grimier with regular use. To keep your grill in tip-top shape all summer long, clean those grill grates. The Grand Grill Daddy Grill Cleaning Brush (say that three times fast), takes an old-school, time-tested approach to dealing with built-up grime.

The brush handle hides a water reservoir that is used to disperse water onto preheated grill grates. Water and grease don't mix, and the resulting steam "melts away baked-on food, grease and residue." Considering that food is cooked on it, cleaning the grill without the need for harsh chemicals is a good thing; let fire and water do the trick. A season's worth of greasy burgers and overly sauced chicken won't stand a chance. But just in case, some good ol'-fashioned elbow grease wouldn't hurt, either.
