Default Cleaning smoker for inspection?

Hey All,

So I'm getting my first inspection on my food trailer tomorrow. I've been cooking everyday for about 8 months now, but somehow they just forgot about me. So I'm giving my trailer a solid clean and I'm wondering how much time I should devote to cleaning the smoker. It's a large hog-style smoker where the grease drains out the bottom, but unfortunately there's quite a few uneven spots where the grease clumps up.

In your experience do they have you pull the whole cooker apart and inspect everything like they do inside the food truck / food trailer? I clean it out every week but it's never going to look as good as it did when I first got it.

Any other advice or particular areas to give extra attention to would be appreciated. I work on a Marine Corps base so the people inspecting it are called Preventative Medicine and the Army Veterinarians.
