Thought I would start another thread to ask a couple question. I bought a little over a year old Lang 84D w/chargriller. Have a few questions that have been popping up. So here are the ones I remember:
1. Should I strip off the old seasoning inside the grill and reseason? How do I strip it?
2. How do you clean the grates? Is it ok to hose off the outside surfaces with soap/water?
3. I would imagine the way to clean it out is when its still hot to use a water hose to spray in the main chamber. Can you damage the smoker in any way? Crack it?
4. Should I season the outside surfaces or just outside on the firebox? Will seasoning the outside of the firebox stop rust from forming? Is peanut oil what y'all recommend?
I have a lot more questions but cant remember them off hand at the moment. Anything else you guys would suggest as far as maintanance and upkeep would be appreciated.
I've been reading and watching the videos on the Lang site.
