Cleaning the glass on my Charbroil electric smoker

  1. I plan on trying to clean the glass on my smoker with a magic eraser. I see a lot of people have done it with some success I am assuming. Just wondering if anyone of y'all have tried it and how did it work?'

    Also you have to keep after it.
    I clean my glass in my MES door before every use. Takes about 2 minutes.
    If you let it go too long, it's best to use a razor blade first, like a "Widget".
    Then wash it in your favorite way. I just use Windex & Paper towels.

  5. I actually let it go to far and ended up using a razor blade on it. It did a wonderful job. Does the Windex affect the food?

    Rubbing alcohol works very well too.
    Scrap it first, then rubbing alcohol & a paper towel.

    I clean my MES40 window while it is warm with some of those Clorox disinfecting kitchen wipes. it does a nice job of cutting thru the gunk. and like Bear says, a razor blade for the tough stuff.

    I guess it would if you sprayed the food.
    I just open the door all the way & spray close-up to avoid anything going airborne.

  9. Thanks for the info! I’ve been wanting to clean the glass on my smoker for a while now, but wasn’t sure how to even start!

    Happy smoking, all!
