Re: Melting tar out of NSTs with a Weber (grill)

Original poster: Yurtle Turtle <yurtle_t@xxxxxxxxx>

I did several Frances in my oven. It was a gas oven
with an electronic temp control, so I could start with
a low temp and slowly ramp it up 5 degrees at a time,
allowing enough time for the nst to heat up. Once I
found the temp where it started to soften, I'd put it
in a cheap SS wok and tip it onto its side. I was able
to get most tar out this way, without creating any
smoke or fumes. Occassionally, I'd take it outside and
dig the tar out with a wooden popsicle stick, to speed
up the process. You'll still need some sort of solvent
to really clean it up.
