Clean Burn

I just did my 1st clean burn and while it was burning I noticed that the dome of the egg was sweating a brown liquid I was woundering if this has happened to anyone else.I also was concerened that the inside of my egg really didn't get so clean the fire ring ,fire box and plate setter all came very clean but the inside is still black maybe I did something wrong any suggestions would help

    Ball up some tin foil and give the dome a rub with it. The inside I mean.

    I do them when I look under my dome and see flakes of crud which have already started to drop tiny black flakes on my food. Granted you can scrape some and rub some etc. But a clean HOT burn out - I mean let it RIP and burn out overnight! Will do wonders! Now if you never do many greasy cooks, nor use a lot of creosote building smoke cooks then you can get by longer. That help?
