That’s from Lisa Ackerley, a leading expert on food safety. And a grill’s heat won’t necessarily kill illness-causing microbes, which can be transferred to your burgers and hotdogs.

So why are outdoor grills so filthy? Because living in the backyard exposes them to decaying plant matter, food, and bird droppings. And that makes the grill a magnet for harmful bacteria like E.coli, salmonella, and listeria. 

Bottom line: To protect the guests at your next barbecue, give your grill a good scrub before you fire it up.
