Same as you. I do every so often use some simple green to cut some of the harder grease/smoke crud buildup, awayBefore a cook, I break down my SF and use my shop vac to get all the dust. I then scrape out any grease and the clean out the dust drawer, before reassembbling.
How do you keep your SF clean?
I used some high-temp anti-siege lube on mine, but will see if that works. If not I may try it your way.Well, some redneck (me) tightened his screws down fairly tight on the pellet slide and had difficulty removing the screws - ended up having to use a socket. I am guessing a little rust and heat made it difficult to remove. So after my recent cleaning, I didn't see the point of the screws being tight and left them loose.
I have seen on Facebook SF group that some people reportedly breaking their screws.
