The covers can actually trap moisture, and make the mold issue worse. Leave the draft door open between cooks and let it breathe a little. You can scrape off the mold with a ball of tinfoil, and kill the rest with fire!claphamsa said:it is not covered, stupid me! off to amazon....
I live by myself and have had my SBGE for about 6 years. I had a lot of people try to talk me out of a small, and to go bigger, even the dealer that sold it to me. I am extremely happy with my small. I regularly grill both meat and vegetables at the same time for my meals. I can easily spatchcock a chicken, I have smoked an 8 lb pork butt for 12 hours. IMHO a small can work well for 1 to 3 people. No you are not going to smoke a full packer brisket on a small but that is one of it's few limitations.
I have not yet seen an MM in person so I cannot really comment on it, but they both have the same 13" grid size. I also have a LBGE for entertaining and I am really happy with it.
