This year, I started using the Compressed Cotton from Dadant as a smoker fuel. However this fuel creates tremendous creosote build-up in my smoker and I am wondering how to clean the creosote from my smoker so that I easily open and close the top of the smoker. Thanks.

I just cleaned mine this morning, couldn't open the lid. Like the man said, I used a propane torch, and then it just came off easy and clean with my
jacknife.

I also use the torch for lighting mine too, I use small wood chips for fuel from the wood shop.

Tip w/ the torch, first couple times don't do it in the sunlight. That thin metal gets cherry red quick. I don't try to burn it off, I heat till it's crispy and use one of those toothbush style wire brushes on it.
