If you've been using the grill regularly, odds are you still have unused charcoal in the bottom. Shake and stir the charcoal to sift the ash free so it falls loose, then remove the charcoal from the grill and set it aside.
The ceramic components of the grill can easily be removed. These include the fire ring, grate, and fire box. Lift them out with care; ceramic components are fragile, and should be placed in a safe place until you're finished cleaning.
You can either dump out the ash in the bottom of the grill, or vacuum it out. Vacuums with hose or nozzle extensions are ideal.
Using a dry cloth, carefully wipe both the interior of the grill and the ceramic components. Ensure that no cloth fibers remain on any of grill's parts.
Check that the grill's air flow is clear, then place the ceramic parts back into the grill. Add the charcoal you previously removed.
