It's summertime. You just do it outside. But really, it's not that bad and well worth it.

For the grilling surface, please be sure your wire brush has either brass or stainless steel bristles.

For the outside of the grill, I suggest cleaning first with an organic degreaser (like one of the many orange-oil-based cleaners) followed by your favorite stainless steel polish. I have not yet found a stainless steel polish that cuts through grease and soot very well.

A chef once said that it's best to clean cooking surfaces with something compatible with food, like lemon juice. He used a 50/50 solution of lemon juice and water to clean his grill (it was a Japanese steakhouse grill though). Just a thought.
