    Angry Lesson Learned the Hard Way

    Got the smoker out today to do some ribs. Thought I would wipe down the outside of the smoker before I started. Sprayed it down with a little Windex. Wrong thing to use. It took all the lettering off the decal that is around the temperature control knob. Guess I'll be using warm water on a rag from now on to wipe it down. I'll be calling ST tomorrow to order a replacement decal.

    I usually use Simple Green also. Just picked up the wrong bottle yesterday. Just got off the phone with Robin at ST. New label is on its way.

    Great customer service. Ordered the replacement label on Monday, received it on Thursday. I'm back in business. Thanks ST.

    I've had mine since '02. It's stays covered up & outside all the time. The only thing I've ever used to clean the outside is a damp rag & a little extra elbow grease around the top vent.

    Chalk up one more learner re: further non-use of Windex. New label coming here as well.

    Hopefully one lesson is enough, but gotta wonder, since I can't apparently learn from the mistakes of others.....
