How well and how often do you clean your smoker?
denny66 Ahhh a subject near, and far from dear, to my heart! One of the main reasons I LOVE our PK 100 is that you never clean the inside walls or bottom, just the racks! However, with our big commercial one I have to clean it after every.single.use! Not a fan of that honestly!
I use Smokehouse Cleaner to make it easy, just spray this on and let it sti for a few minutes, then scrub any really stubborn spots and then rinse and you are good to go.
As far as how often I’d recommend you clean a home smoker…after any time you do fish for sure. Other than that I would say every 20 or so hours of smoking, though that might be too often for a lot of people. It also depends on how much fat drips down and how good your water pan is at catching that fat.
I just clean the rack, and the temp probe, never the interior. when it starts to flake, I take the vacuum to it. I have a Traeger, so I clean the pellet ash out on every smoking session.
