Master Forge Double Door Vertical Smoker from Lowes - dripping grease

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I have ha this smoker since Christmas of this year and I have been using it once a week consistently.  I noticed last week that It start to drip or leak grease.  I believe it is from the build up of smoke.

 

I have talked to my father who also has a similar smoker (different brand) and he never had to clean his smoker.  I was wondering If I should clean or wipe it down every time I smoke or cold there be something wrong with the smoker.

 

I have the vents partially open and added wool gaskets along the doors to keep the smoke in.

 

Any help or advice to fix this would be appreciated.

 

Thanks!

Yes you need to clean it. If it is dripping grease the next step is the big fire.

Happy smoken.

Try smoking with the vents wide open.... It could be condensate that's dripping... venting the moisture could solve your problem.... Most folks smoke with the vents wide open....

Thanks for the response.  After more investigation, it looks to be condensation of the smoker.  I had all vents closed except for the chimney.  Makes sense, water pan/steam, condensations.  I am still going to give it a good clean. Thank you again!
