Tuesday's Tips & Tricks: My Favorite Tip of 2011

It is hard to believe 2011 is coming to an end.  This year has just flown by for me!  Out of all of my Tuesday's Tips & Tricks posts for this year, below is my favortie.  It is the easiest way to clean your contact grill.

The weather in New Mexico, the last week has been cold and snowy.  I usually grill out all year long, but when the temperature dips to -9 degrees, it is time for me to move the grilling inside.  

Typically, I spray the grill with cooking spray before I cook on it.  If I forget, I use this tip:

Clean your contact grill the easy way; after you finish grilling up a tasty meal, while the grill is still hot, unplug the grill, and place several damp paper towels on the grill then close the lid. While you eat, the steam from the wet paper towels will loosen baked on food.  Making clean up a breeze.
