Maintenance of Infrared Burners
I have a grill with an IR burner and some critter somewhere between a chipmunk and squirrel made its home in it. It was all full of pieces of grass. The IR burner had a cover over it which is provided for use when the conventional burner is in use so the inside didn't get very dirty. I removed the burner and sprayed mostly the outside in detergent and washed off the burner and I flushed the ceramic itself with plain water to remove any excrement the animal may have left on the burner (along with scrubbing out the inside of the grill). Do I need to let it dry for several days to make sure the ceramic hasn't absorbed water that will make steam and crack the burner matrix?
