Removing Creosote from Smoker??

10863 10
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.

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.
