    Hi--aside from the drip tray and ash tray, do you all clean up your MES 30? Side walls and front door? What about the rubber gasket around the door?

    No, no and no
    I do clean the grates

    I clean the removable parts (grates, drip pan) of my MES40, but no on the walls, door, gasket. 

    Exception:  mine has the window in the door, and I do clean the glass about every 3rd smoke with hot soapy water, although I doubt it would be necessary if I didn't want to look through it.

    I clean everything I can remove. I don't have the glass door smoker so this isn't an issue for me. I typically will put an aluminum foil pan on the bottom rack to catch all the drippings so I don't have to fool with cleaning the drip pan.
  5. I clean my racks & drip pan but that's it. I don't want to lose all the seasoning I worked so hard to get.
  6. Never aside form the racks and the wood tray. I have the glass door model, but I don't clean it because it wouldn't tell me anything anyway.
