 I am sure there is an easy answer for this. My MES 30 that I used only 3 times now wants to smoke without chips in it. I believe it is from the grease drippings but very hard to clean that out. Is there an easy answer for this? I hate my meat to smell like burned grease....
I like to line the bottom of my smoker with foil for easy clean up. Clean it out good then put foil in it. A little baking soda and water will usually clean up the mess. Or there are other things you can use but that is what I use.
There is a tray in the bottom that is supposed to collect the grease.

 make sure that you line this with foil.

  Clean it out good and then use foil from now on . is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
