Brown sticky stuff left all over the inside of my smoker after smoking?? - Page 2

If the outside temperature is very cold, more creosole will condense on metal parts.

Snapped a few pictures of my WSM yesterday after work, just to make sure we are all talking about the same thing;

 

 

 

 

Like I mentioned earlier, I do not wash this unless it begins to flake of...at that point I only wipe down with a damp cloth.

 

Cheers.

jw, morning...... Try adjusting the temp. using the air inlet and leave the top vent wide open.... That will allow the moisture to escape and the fire will have all the air it needs for the given temp...... Reducing the chunks to 1 will reduce the smoke and creosote.... Dave

That just looks like smoke seasoning. It doesn't appear to be creosote and I wouldn't worry about this.

I dont clean mine, i let all that residue act as seasoning, seals up the gaps in the lid, and door.  If you are always getting brown flake, keep the top vent open or use a little less wood.
