So, more on this smoker.  When I got it there was a thick coat of black, greasy soot on the inside.  The fellow I bought it from said he tried to clean it and gave up.  I found that Purple Power degreaser just melted this stuff!  I was careful to keep it off the heating element, and used rags and 3M scrubby pad sponges, and a toothbrush, and after a couple of hours it was as clean as new.   Well, not really, but very good!  I rinsed with a spray bottle of water and more clean rags, kept doing it until I thought I had most of it off.   I then ran the smoker, empty, for a few hours to burn off any residual chemicals. 

I learned that these are designed for wood chunks, not the chips I had for my gas smoker.  I found chunks at Lowes, maybe not as good as Cookshack's product, but will do for now.  I got Mesquite and Hickory.

Haven't done a smoke with chunks yet,

Would really like to get a couple of new stainless racks, the rib rack, and the cabinet stand, but will have to save up for those.
