Place an disposable aluminum pan (I use old lasagna pans) over the area you grill on. This serves to act as a reflector and concentrate the heat for quicker grate heating and with longer exposure, gets the temperature up in the "oven clean" area. This makes scraping with a wire brush easier as well as reducing the amount of fuel required to get your grill hot. Usually I follow that with a quick spread of vegetable oil from a paper towel, but for my next steak, I've got to try the Argentine Asadore onion technique! After the grill is turned off, I return the aluminum pans to the grill and the residual heat seems to make it easier to clean the next time.
