I work in a smokehouse right now. We have 2 southern pride smokers. 1 is 150# smoker and the other is a 500# smoker. I've been noticing it is very tedious and time consuming to clean all the racks from my smokers. Are there any tips or tricks to help speed up the process?

I usually use simple green or something similar, spray them down, hit them with a power washer, than a quick soap scrub and thorough rinse, then dry in the sun. Usually takes about 30-45 minutes to clean my 12 racks

I always made sure to brush the racks well each day before loading and run my heat up to burn most everything off so I could tap the racks with the back of my brush and watch things fall off.

I put down heavy foil and fold ends up for the ribs and chicken pieces, then fold to remove taking most of the mess with. I smoke the butts, brisket and boneless chicken thighs in hotel pans. I only smoke bacon on bare racks. Saves a ton of time cleaning and still plenty of smoke
