    Hey fellas
    I have a custom offset smoker. Had it now for bout seven years. Inside seems to be flaking a little. Looks like a mix of sut, grease, (maybe some high heat paint too?). Was wondering best way to clean the pit out. Was gonna hit it with a pressure washer, try to towel dry it best I could then re-season it by burning some oak for a couple hrs. Good idea? Should I put high heat paint inside? Sounds weird to do so.
  2. you could hit it with a bit of vinegar (white would be best in my eyes) give a bit of a scrub to knock off the loose bits then dry really well then season it thats about all i would put into cleaning the inside of my smoker and i would not use paint of any kind on the inside

    When you re-season it with the oak, I'd also spray the interior down with Pam or wipe it down with a veggie oil after it's warm and then do a good hot burn to set the season.
