Default Cleaning Offset

Gotta Oklamoha Joes offset cooker..

Need to clean it out after this last smoke.

Anyadvice on how to best do this? Do you just wash/scrub it and let it drain out the drain hole? What's best to use?

If it's hot grease stuff, just let it out the drain. If not, just scrape out as much as you can with a plastic putty knife, or something like that and toss it. Other than that, I wouldn't worry about it.

When it's still hot/warm, you can dump some water through it and down the drain. Put a fire in to dry it out and when it's warm and cooling down, rub it down with oil. I usually just clean out what I can easily scrape out and leave the rest.
