St Louis trimmed 9 racks of spares yesterday. Made a BIG( gallon zip lock allmost full) batch of my pig rub for them. rubbed them down and in the fridge last nite for a smoke today. Went out at 7 am to get my MES out the shed and get it pre heated for the smoke . Opened it up and it was FULL of mold of assorted colors and thickness. My son had used it to smoke some wings and didn't clean or empty the water pan b4 storing. spent the last 4 hrs getting clean . Washed everything that i could in the sink and since i have to smoke ribs today i didn't want to use bleach in it. used white vinegar and scrapped and washed and sprayed it out. That was a nasty job. Got it clean and heating up now. Ribs should have been on at 9 am and it's now 1 pm. guess it will be 2 before i can get the ribs on.
