Cleaning your smoker

Postby Copasspupil » Tue May 08, 2018 12:16 pm

How do you guys clean yours? My food side is gloss black and thinking about cleaning it up since I’m in the process of fixing the outside and painting it again. Simple green and re oiling it?

I'm not an expert but every once in a while I'll take a wire brush to the whole interior. I wear heavy rubber gloves because it is a mess. I then sweep it out with a brush and after that take my blower and blow it out

I'd say yes also. My pellet smoker gets all kinds of gunk on the inside. Some of which is creosote, and is bad for the flavor of food per some folks. I'd imagine stick burners get the same build up since they're burning wood also.

I clean my offset with a scraper, a brush and a weed burner.
