If are smokers/Grills were full of creosote I believe we would be very Ill. I still believe it is a Carbon Build up.
The only part of this entire thread that belies my personal experience is that creosote is colorless to yellowish. I burn a lot of wood for heat and all I have ever seen is black
creosote. Anyone ever seen it otherwise?
