Allot of Moisture

I've been using the small all week long, I haven't lit the large in awhile. Its been raining all week long and when I put some thighs in the large tonight, water started dripping from the bottom vent. When I cleaned the ash out prior to the cook it was a little damp but there weren't any puddles of water in the bottom. Has any one ever experienced this before, is this all just condensation or what?

    Hey Tim that is normal. We have just had so much rain and the eggs just suck it up sometimes more than others.
    if they are sitting out in the weather they have more just cause of that. mine are under cover and still have the drippies sometimes LOL

    You can dry it up if you want to but, you don't have to and it may be in vane for a time anyway. :)

    open egg and let sun dry it out, then do a high burn to remove any mold
