cleaning my smoker

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey fellas
I have a custom offset smoker. Had it now for bout seven years. Inside seems to be flaking a little. Looks like a mix of sut, grease, (maybe some high heat paint too?). Was wondering best way to clean the pit out. Was gonna hit it with a pressure washer, try to towel dry it best I could then re-season it by burning some oak for a couple hrs. Good idea? Should I put high heat paint inside? Sounds weird to do so.

i would just do a burn at high temp,highest you can go without damaging your smoker for a couple of hours and scrape off with a wire brush,i personally would not paint the inside.

No paint on the inside!


If you want to use a cleaner I suggest Simple Green - it's non-toxic. You could high heat burn the inside, let it cool, scrub it with Simple Green, rinse well, high heat it a 2nd time, then re-season. The 2nd high heat is strictly to dry it and burn any cleaner residue you might have missed.
