New from OHIO

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Since I was a kid I was always fascinated by fire and smoke, so after playing college ball I set out to become a fireman. As if I didn't have enough fire and smoke in my life a few years back I got into meat smoking. I started out on a cheapo vertical propane smoker. It did the job for a few years, turned out some great meals. It has since been laid to rest after a giant oak tree fell square on top of it. I replaced that smoker with an Oklahoma Joe's Longhorn offset smoker. Just got it assembled and sealed up tight and was getting ready to clean and season it. But I have ran into a problem.

My problem is that the inside of the smoker has some sort of "glue"??? Stuck all over it that I can't seam to break down and clean it. I want to make sure all of that is gone before I smoke my first meal on it.

I was tossing around the idea of laying a bed of charcoal on the lower grates of the smoking chamber to burn it all off. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Hello and welcome to you, congratulations on that new smoker.

I can't answer your question 'cause I don't know enough about it.

If someone that knows more about it doesn't happen along soon

just jump right out into the forums and ask, you'll get answers.

Welcome to the forum.


I've never seen a problem quite like yours.


But I would think that firing up the smoker & running it as hot as you can would burn off just about anything in there.


Maybe someone with a better idea will be along soon.
