How to Kasher a Barbecue

How to Kasher a Barbecue
Day: Monday
Date: April 4, 2016
Parshat: Tazriah, HaChodesh
Yalkut Yosef: O"H: 451

Skewers and barbecue grills are used without liquid. Therefore, if a person knows he had hametz mixed into something he barbecued or if he toasted buns on the grill, the grill requires libun in order to kasher it for Pesah. This can be done by heating the grill intensely until it gives off sparks. If he did hag'ala instead, that would work too although it's not ideal. If one is not sure whether or not during the past year he put hametz on the grill he should still kasher it just in case, but for that situation hag'ala is fine. Molds that are used to make rolls and baguettes require libun. If they will be destroyed by doing libun and it is not at all practical to buy new ones, hag'ala may be done instead.
