Elvis was King Creole, my Daisy is Queen Creosote

I've been smoking a lot since I got Humpty and my sliding daisy is getting sort of ugly with creosote. I wipe off the liquid type, but would like to give it a good bath. I checked the archives for the word and nothing popped up. Anybody have any suggestions? Thanks! RRP

    RRP,[p]An overnight soak in ammonia and a good rinse will do the trick.[p]Spin

    RRP,[p]If you do highg temp searing once or so a month, it will do a good job of cleaning off some of the GOOK! I use "simple green" for a more in depth cleaning![p]Smokey

  • Spin, I used a large coffee can and dumped in some ammonia and closed the top with the plastic seal. Works great as you suggest. A few days doesn't hurt if you can.
    Easy to slosh around and agitate.

    RRP,[p] When i run into that problem, i dismantle the lid & just
    let it sit in soapy water over night. I then use a mild
    tooth brush to clean the hard to get places. Rinse, dry,
    then put back together & start all over. Not rust yet.[p] Earl
