mold inside big green egg

After not using the green egg for a couple of months, we opened it to find the inside and the rack coverd in mold. Any idea why and how to effectively clean it?

    Same thing happened to me. I left a water pan in the egg for about ten days and mold city. One big hot burn for about 30 mionutes and I was back in biz. Not the first time it's happened to me. Good luck.

  • dawg10,
    BK gave you the correct answer, but your mistake was letting youregg sit idle for two months, ha. Hope it cleans up well and happy cooking.
