How much should I be cleaning my mes 30 after I've used it. Do I let stuff build up or will that affect the flavor of future cooks? So far I've used the water pan and saved the drippings. I add some back into the finishing sauce and save the rest for future pots of beans.
Also, is there some info on the best way to load this cooker? I looked around the site but haven't found it yet. I'd like to make some mac and cheese in there, should I put it on the top rack? Drippings aside, does it matter where in the cooker things go? If you do a shoulder and a turkey, do you just let one drip on the other or do you try to prevent that?
