Chimney Sections: Some timbers will produce sap which can fuse the chimney sections. If this occurs, remove the sections and clean with a stiff wire brush. Then coat the connecting areas with a light spray of oil and rub dry. (Only use seed oils, such as canola oil.) If the Ozpig is being left outdoors for an extended period, the chimney lengths should be removed after use and oiled.
Ozpig Storage: Please ensure your Ozpig is covered if stored outdoors, and that the unit is cold before doing so. Our website showcases a custom cover for purchase if required.
