To foil or not, and other cleaning questions...

Hi Everyone,

I've had a 055 for about two years now, and couldn't be happier. I've done the most common parts of a pig, brisket, salmon, turkey, chicken, jerky, lots of jalapenos and have never had a bad meal. My last cookshack order was for a case of their mild bbq sauce, and it's almost gone.

Over the smokes, I must admit that my attention to cleaning has decreased. I always clean the grates between smokes, but have stopped using the foil at the bottom of the smoker. I typically just scrape it down while it it warm, and use some paper towels. After about a year and 40+ smokes, I can't see any adverse results. Is there a reason for me to go back to foil? What is everyone else doing to clean their home smokers?

Thanks!
