Question - Do you drink the beer first or do you throw it on the fire?  I don't know about you but I know I'd feel better if I drank it first! :-\

I think you are on to something Roger.  If you drink enough beer, the creosote just looks flakey.   :)

One of the guys on here swore by one of the anti creosote treatments. It came in a bucket and you threw some in every so often . I forget who it was, and what it was. So I guess The am not much help but there than there is a product out there that works. Edit: I am pretty sure it was creosote Destroyer.

Iíve been told by several old timers that rock salt takes creosote out. Just canít bring myself to do that, think Iíll try the beer cans first.

Creosote Destroyer does work, Iíve found if you have a gasser it works best to add just as it shuts off.

For those of you with gassers, use caution because the cans can plug your nozzle pretty easily but it does work, old license plates work as well but I think most of us have more beer cans than license plates to burn.

Slimjim.....What is a nozzle  in your gasser ?  Do you mean a propane back up nozzle ?  I have a gasser (Eclassic 2300) with no built in propane back up and I not aware of my unit having a nozzle ?????

The opening in the floor of the primary chamber that the gasses exit thru is referred to as the nozzle.
