Water smoker cleaning question

  1. Hi All, I have a question concerning cleaning the interior of my upright gas water smoker. I keep my food grills / grates super clean. I soak them and scrub them down after each smoke.

    The water bowl is always lined and cleaned after each smoke as well.

    What do I do about the inside of the smoker itself? It just keeps building up that sticky residue. Should that be cleaned off every now and then or do I just let it go?
  2. fire it up

    Just let it build up, clean it once or twice a year if you think it needs it but that depends on how much you use your smoker.
    nothing will grow on it and it provides a great seasoning/coating that will protect the inside of your smoker.

    I clean my sNp twice a year but I use it all the time.
