I'd spray it down with a diluted bleach solution then scrub it and do a burn.

Torch it out with a weed burner, then brush out the residue.

Mold thrives when moisture, high humidity, grease, food particles and stagnant air all come together. Mold is killed at somewhat low temperatures (like 150°), but a burnout will make scraping and clean-up easier. The Big Green Egg people recommend 450° to 500° for 2 hours, then a thorough cleaning after it cools down. Some people report that a cover can sometimes create conditions where mold can really grow.

Sometimes we must embrace what seems like a tragedy...and smile inside while we fire and season a new cooker. Just saying....

Well my better half still was concerned about it so today we went to a grill store and ordered a GMG Prime Jim Bowie to replace it.

At $940 out the door was cheaper than getting another RecTec. It will live in the garage and I'll be better about keeping it clean. Florida weather is hell on everything!



I'll still clean up the RecTec and figure out what to do with it, still works good after 5 years.



I think I'll like that wifi too!

I think I'd get as much as I could out first, then burn it, then clean it again. Had that happen to my PK once, but it's easy to pressure wash.

I think you should send the RecTech to me for some R&R.
I can fix it up great, and you won't have to worry about it any more....


I do a dry out on my Masterbuilt smoker after use, and a heat up before use.
That sterilizes it on both ends.
Then it is clean and dry under the cover.

Ventilation is key to avoid mold.

Definitely scrape it out and burn the rest out. It's steel, it'll be okay.

Congrats on the new grill though. Don't get rid of it if it gets a little dirty, though

I'm going to rehab it, get it back to excellent condition. Probably strip it down after a burn so I can pressure wash it without hurting the electronic stuff.



I tried to do a burn yesterday, it got up to 350 then a fan started squealing and the temp dropped. Auger fan I think. I'll replace it.


Still nice to get a new toy though!

Just FYI the same thing will happen to your new cooker if you don't prop it open or at least have a way to get air flow into the chamber. This used to happen with my WSM but keeping the door off if I don't use it for a while helps avoid mold growing in it. Congrats on the new smoker BTW.

This is where the judicious application of a weed burner comes in. You can actually see what you're burning off vs hoping the overall heat catches it all.
