Clean the Smoker's Cooking Chamber
To clean the interior chamber of the smoker let it cool completely. Remove the racks, water pan, drip tray and smoker box. Brush any particle buildup downward toward the bottom of the smoker. Sweep all residue out of the chamber.
Using warm soapy water, gently scrub the interior surfaces of the smoker with a sponge or a plastic bristle brush. Do not use metal. Wipe it dry. If using a bristle brush, make sure no loose bristles remain on any of the cooking surfaces prior to cooking.
Wash the cooking racks, water pan and drip tray with warm soapy water, rinse and dry. For stick-free cooking and easy cleaning, apply a coat of vegetable oil or vegetable oil-based spray to the cooking racks before each use.
