BBQ deep cleaning and maintenance checklist
Make sure that the gas bottle's connections have all been tested for leaks, then connect the gas bottle to the smoker and turn the gas on.
Use a piezo igniter to light the gas. Piezo ignition involves using a spark rather than a flame.
Load the smoker box with charcoal, pellets or wood chips. Chips will need to be soaked for around 20 minutes prior to being used in the smoker.
The water pan helps to stabilise the temperature and minimise fluctuations. The internal cabinet temperature can be further controlled by the gas control at the bottom of the unit and by opening or closing some or all of the intake vents on the cabinet. The smoker will reach ideal cooking temperature quickly so make sure you're ready to add your meat!
