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.

better safe then sorry ! .......i would clean it then recoat it , i clean mine but then right afterwards i reseason the smoker to keep it from rusting .

and if the smoker has been sitting for awhile i would clean and reseason too be safe. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
