We'll got my new pig cooker from BQ Grills and I've cooked my first pig and everything turned out great.

My question is how should I clean the cooker after using it?

What should I use to clean it or do I just have burn everything off?

Thanks for the help.

I use my trusty homeowner pressure washer for mine. Just a cheapy home center model.

Or a weed burner and wire brush. What kind of grates do you have? If they are stainless go with the presure washer. expanded metal go with the weed burner

What if they're expanded stainless? Hit my grates yesterday with the weed burner, they warped up big time. Never had that happen before, almost had a stroke! They cooled down and went back to normal though, no damage done.

Toprow, those BQs are easy to clean. We just scrape down the grates while they are still hot. And then when the insides need scraping, or cleaning, we usually just heat it up and clean w/ a large putty knife or something like that. Just be sure to keep the flame shield clean and you'll be fine. We don't clean the insides out that often, but we keep the flame shield and grates clean.

once a year i do a burning in the smoke box (one bag of charcoal and vents wide open) and burn most of the resin out then i get the hose and a big all purpose brush and scrub and wash out. as for my grates i will wash in the sink with the rest of the days dishes everytime i smoke
