My current smoker has a large deposit of tar and junk in the 'spout' between the plate with holes in it and the conical opening. Is there a simple way of removing it apart from blasting it with a blow-lamp?

Soda solution with a spud jammed onto the spout.
I leave the tar on as it is a final reserve of 'scent' when the fuel has given up.

I like the spud idea to stop any liquid leaking out. I'll have a go and see if I can clean it up soon rather than leave it all winter like I sometimes do with beekeeping stuff.
