  1. Whats the best way to clean a smoker (the cheap kind) to keep it from rusting. I'm afraid to use a hose

    Check weather report for a dry day.

    I use the hose and blast it with hot water.

    Then use a leaf blower to blow off all the water.

    Then move it to under the sun to dry out, and get the fire going.

    My wife 'suggested" cleaning my smoker and I said   "touch it and you die" My Smokey MT is coated inside and smells great. Why would i even think of cleaning. This smoker could never rust. We are talking 10 plus years of smoke. However I have hosed out just enough to remove small chunks of wood and meat that has fallen to the bottom.
  4. Someday I want one of those big smokers on a trailer. For now I have cheap models so have to preserve them as long as I can since I know they will rust out

    I've never cleaned mine.  The grills of course, as the meat touches it.
