    Oven cleaner is the way to go. I know CandySueQ uses it to good effect.

      After the oven cleaner, wash thoroughly, and then what? Run a load of charcoal through it? Should it be re-seasoned with a fatty meat? I'm getting a build up on mine and think I need a really thorough clean out.

        or you can go high tech... www.spongejet.com

        (probably easier to use oven cleaner, but I've always prefered to media blast metal to clean without destroying it)

          I don't want to remove the finish, just the crud!

        Oven cleaner or ammonia to clean. Both work well.

        I have been know to collect old kettles and find it hard to beat ammonia on the really old ick that built up in there. Not to mention its about as affordable and anything. Much easier to deal with as well IMHO

        A good rinse then a clean out burn. I dont find the need to season a kettle much.

          Thanks PB and Jon. Will try the ammonia first, just because. Not sure it'll eat through this stuff though. It isn't as greasy as it is crusty.

          Heeeyyyyy....maybe it'd help if I mix it with bleach!

            PLS do yourself a favour and do not mix any chemicals unless you really know them well . In one of my previous jobs i underwent 'fire training'. They taught us that mixing certain household chemicals can cause fire or spontaneous combustion.. just be careful use only one at a time and rinse very well....

                I'm glad you know all that - i'm not familiar with chemicals that much just know to be careful with 'em - i'm more of a metallurgy guy... Just don't want anyone to get hurt that's all . And i have great respect for firefighters and medical first responder's - they save lifes... i'm always about safety first that's just me - let us know how it turned out - maybe i'll need to give my kettle a thorough clean one day...

                I was thinking about this after I posted, and it ocurred to me that the danger of mixing bleach and ammonia is one of those things you really need to know, but with all of the new cleaning products out these days hardly anyone uses ammonia anymore. So, this tidbit of knowledge is falling by the wayside. Interesting.

                  One of my co-workers found an old kettle by the curb and brought it to work. $64 to Amazon and 2 days later we have a new one touch system, hinged grate, Briquette holders and chimney starter. Tomorrow is the maiden voyage!

                    Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                    The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills.

                    The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


                    The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                    The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


                    The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                    Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


                    The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.
