Ok... it was a little bit more than rain. We had tornado watches and warnings, but hey, I had promised ribs for dinner.
I did fine maintaining the proper temperature and I managed to keep my Maverick dry with a ziplock bag and a plastic container, but upon cleaning it out this morning, I found a few inches of water in the bottom. I am not so worried about that, but what does concern me is that on one side of the inside of the smoker, it kind of looks like a sheet of rust washing down the side.
In addition, the "seasoning" on the lid started flaking off during the cooking and is still very flaky now. Should i brush it all off?
Has anyone else had an experience like this?
Should I have done something different?
Is there anything that I should do know to ensure that the smoker remains in good working order?
Any advice would be greatly apreciated.
