cleaning your mes 30? - Page 6

post #101 of 105

Bear and the group,

 

I did forget to mention that I do clean the temp sensors after every smoking.  All in all, it takes me about an hour to clean the smoker.

 

My Army training and my OCD make me want to keep things clean and serviceable.  DUHH!

I never clean my the water pan and the drip pan and the heat temp
post #103 of 105

The internal temperature started fluctuating wildly so I thought: The temperature probe for the smoker (not the one you put in the meat; I never use it.) was probably covered with "seasoning". I found Masterbuilt's "How to clean your smoker" YouTube video but nothing I have seen shows me where the smoker's temperature probe is located. There is a "nipple" that sticks out center right side, and a flat "button" center left. Are these the gauges for the smoker?

 

Is the temperature probe the 1/2" "nipple" or the 1/8" "button" inside back center of the smoker? 

 

Thanks,

JibsMan

I clean them both whenever they start looking a little black. (Maybe every 5 to 10 smokes)

 

The one that looks like a Toggle switch (Nipple) is the heat sensor.

 

And I believe the flat "Button" one is the Overheat shutoff sensor.
