Hey I went to do some smoking today and when I took the cover off I discovered I made a huge mistake and didn't clean the smoker. It has been at least a month of hot summer temps and the entire inside is mildewed and mold every where. I;ve pulled out what I can to clean in sink and dishwasher. Any ideas on cleaning inside?

I would scrape off all that I could with a putty knife. If the interior is all stainless steel, I would follow up with oven cleaner. If not, a thorough scrubbing with hot soapy water. Rinse well, dry, and re-season. If your smoker is under a roof of some sort, I would forgo the cover. Trapped moisture can grow mold.
