I haven't used my smoker in a couple months.
I got a turkey all ready, opened up my smoker and found.....MOLD!
The whole interior, racks, rack hangers, everything was covered with green mold.

I scrubbed it out with hot water, dish soap and steelwool.
After thoroughly rinsing I put in some hickory, closed it up and let it dry and re-season.

I've had my smoker almost 2 years and have used it many times, keep it wiped out and fairly clean (I thought!).

Has anyone else found mold?

What can I do to keep this from happening again?

One thing for sure, it cleaned out VERY easily.
