Your smoker was casted from cast iron?

Not quite sure, what do you use to wipe and clean the outside? After having the smoker a a couple of months and completing a few long cooks, I've got some grease and splatter runs that look horrible. I'd like to find a product that won't ruin the finish, but does a good job. Remember Larry I'm a rookie...Undecided

RE: Cleaning smoker
Yo, I have been using Simply Green for years both on my commercial smokers and my recreational smokers. It is a good all-purpose cleaner and environmentally safe. I have also used a cleaner from the dollar stores called Aw some that does a good job as well. Hope this helps?

I think this might be better then using the industrial stuff from Sams... It takes the paint off!

RE: Cleaning smoker
TSP cleans the grease off of a grill tables and sides fairly well.... using a scrubbie and lots of elbow grease... gave my my weber gaser its yearly bath today. I just scrape the insides with a putty knife and the grates go in the sink for about 30 min scrape each side and then crisco and burn it all in...
cleaned my WSM's today and ran a load of coals through them...

RE: Cleaning smoker
On a daily basis we use dish soap and a quat sanitizer. We fill buckets of it and keep it near the smoker to clean as we go. deep cleans find us at the car wash...

RE: Cleaning smoker
I spent 2 hours Sunday night at the car wash cleaning my pit... Took all the grates & tuning plates out and got her super clean, then oiled her back up!

Should be ready for Craig now!
