I heard that before, but I clean mine before every use, and I have never had trouble seeing everything inside, except when the inside is covered with condensation & water streaks running down the glass.

Within a 1/2 to 1 hour my glass is either covered in water or smoke residue and I can't really see anything through it, doesn't bother me really. Once done smoking a little rubbing alcohol takes the crud right off. Paper towel used to clean the glass comes away with a nice brown smoke color to it.

I love this forum, I've been adding water the entire time I've been smoking and I always thought something was off. I had a thought about it and came here to double check and everyone answered it for me. Thanks guys, y'all rock.

I've never used mine yet.

But I was thinking about using it for BBQ Beans. Heat them and add smoke.
What do you guys think?
Might make a decent bean bucket.... :rolleyes:

No water. I have sand in mine and cover it with foil.
