I have a Weber bullet that I have not used for about six months. I am planning on smoking ribs and chicken tomorrow. Tonight I looked inside my smoker and there is a lot of mold growing around the charcoal ring. The food grates have been out of the smoker since the last time I used it.
Should I just run the smoker at high heat for a little bit to burn off the mold before putting my meat on? Or should I clean the mold off first before starting my fire?
