My friends think I smoke everyday. I'd like to, but sadly I'm not in business.
I clean mine good, one or two times a year. The rest of the time I brush my grills, then wipe out the BBQ chamber and shovel out the firebox.
I do empty the grease bucket after every smoke, then wash it with Simply Green
. No ants or critters making a mess.
