Default Cleaning Smoke/Burn Stains on stainless steel

Hey all,

Just wanted to throw this out in case anyone else has run into this. I had some pretty bad smoke/burn marks on the door of my BWS from accidentally not shutting the bottom coal door all the way during an over night brisket cook. I had tried many store "stainless steel cleaners" but they did nothing. My mom told me to try vinegar and baking soda and sure enough it cleaned right up.

Many may have already known this but for those who didn't (like me) you might want to try it to get your smoker all purty like again.

Oxyclean or ZEP Purple also work nicely.

To insure your BWS fire box is locked tight, go to your local hardware store & get a couple of replacement hinge pins (http://www.lowes.com/pd_308895-53458...Ntt=hinge+pins) There is a hole behind the handle. The pin will only go through if the door is tightly shut. I use these on both the fire box & cook box doors to make sure they are tight.
