I'd like to hear everyone's tips on a burning question. How do you clean your Masterbuilt electric smoker? Here is what I do: I remove the rack and pan and clean them in the kitchen sink with dish soap, removing grease but leaving the "seasoning." I then set them up to air dry. I will occasionally wipe down the inside of the smoker itself with a dish rag and soapy water, but not always. I then set the smoker to its highest temperature without water or wood chips and let it cook empty for a number of hours, to burn off anything that would spoil. I'm not sure that this is the best way, but this is how I am currently doing it. As you can tell, I am not trying to get my smoker to "squeaky clean," but rather leave some seasoning in place without creating any health hazard. Any and all tips welcomed! Thanks.
