We can’t use gaskets everywhere like inside the smoker.

We will use silicone sealant to cover the internal gaps.

Requirement

Action

  • Put on your globs

How to maintain the Oklahoma Joe Longhorn combo grill?

  1. After every use, remove the ashes. Ash retains moisture and can produce byproducts that cause rusting. Allow the ashes to completely cool, then sweep them up and put them in a sealed metal bucket for disposal.
  2. Remove any sauces or marinades that have spilled on the surfaces using a warm, wet towel.
  3. Brush the grates with a nylon bristle brush before and after use.
  4. If the damp towel and bristle brush don’t get the grease or bits of food off the cooking chamber, you can scrape with a 4″ putty knife.
  5. Scrub rusted areas with steel wool and re-season with high-temperature cooking oil.
