I have started to notice a sticky residue on the lid and lip of the kettle. Some of this stickiness has made the lid vent very tough to adjust. Is this a normal byproduct of smoking? Do you clean this off? How often?

Should I do a deeper clean once a year where I scrub down the whole grill?

How do you clean behind the lid vent to remove the sticky build up there?

Any other tips and or advice would be great.

Seeking a Black Sequoia I know I know, I'd settle for just the tabbed no leg grill

Here to say I recently freed my bro’s one-touch using wd-40 Penetrant. Blasted it and left for a couple of minutes.
Anyway…
