I went about 15 days without using my egg. I left it with the bottom vent closed, the ceramic cap on and it was covered with the BGE cover. When i opened it up this weekend to do burgers it smelled gross. Kind of like an ashtray mixed with bad meat. Once i got the lump going and let it go for awhile it was fine. I was just wondering if there is a way to avoid this in the future. I typically let the egg run for a good 20 minutes after my cooks with the vents fully open to try and help burn any meat residue off the inside before i shut it down completely. I was thinking once it was cooled i could open the vents, remove the cap, then cover. This way some air will circulate through the egg when not in use. How do you guys leave your egg when you know it might be a few weeks before its next use?
