Picked up an 18 WSM
« on: February 20, 2019, 07:15:26 PM »
I picked up an 18" WSM over the weekend for $100.  Its well used but still well worth what I paid.  I have most of it cleaned up but the bottom is not cooperating with me.  I used my steel wool like I have on kettles but cant seem to get it as clean as others.  Any other secrets to get it clean?  Also, anyone have a heat deflector for an 18" laying around let me know.

Congrats on the wsm Brett.
I lay shop rags in the bowl soaked with cider vinegar. After soaking for awhile and softening up I use razor blades just like a kettle followed by steel wool.
