I recently lucked out and upgraded from a 16" diameter offset smoker to a Viking Gravity feed smoker.
The luck park because a friend was getting out of the game and let it go for a great price.
It's amazing, all in all, it seals up exceptionally well, very efficient, but running into an issue with excessive moisture in it post cook I have not had in my previous smokers.
To try and resolve it:
-Tried "airing" it out as it cools from the cook.
-Tried "burning" it at 300 & 400 degrees for a bit at the end of the cook.
-Wiping it down a bit once at a safe temperature.
-Made sure to clean the trap every time
-Pulling the ash once it's safe.
Other suggestions welcome, the moisture is wrecking the seasoning and I can't seem to resolve it.
