It probably varies a bit from model to model, but I'd like to hear what others do to clean their Pit Boss and how often.
For mine, see pic, I usually run it up to about 400 or so after a cook for a while to do a burn off and wire brush off the grates before each use. For the glass window door every now and then I use a cleaner to get the smoke residue off so I can see what's going on inside. So aside from cleaning out the fire pot and the grease trap that's about it.

I do the same with mine
 
PB1150- I clean mine out after every cook. Take grates out and scrape them on some news papers both sides and when the grill is hot I brush them off with grill brush just to get anything that I may have missed. I take out the drip pan and scrape that off with a scraper and make sure there isn’t anything on the side where the grease runs down to the bucket. Empty the fire pot seeing it’s a easy clean out type then brush the bottom of the barrel with a paint brush out the ash clean out for pellet dust. Clean the temp probe with a damp sponge. Recently I had to take the cover off by the temp probe to get the whole probe. I really don’t have any grease accumulation going on prolly just some discoloration on the lid and residue in the smoke stack. I haven’t worried about that yet. I vaccumed out the auger recently and the hopper I did that once since last June. Prolly do it again in spring time again.
