need help on resurrecting old bigger smoker.


Joined Aug 9, 2012
so I have been using my smaller gas smoker for the last 2 years, Now with turkey day approaching I need to use my larger one. The delima I am having is the seasoning on the walls is peeling off like paint. Should I clean it to like new or just do a hot and heavy smoke on and recoat it. I have allways been under the impression not to clean them.

and if the smoker has been sitting for awhile i would clean and reseason too be safe.
