"I've got some mold growing on the charcoal, pepper and bean bricks. Can I just submerge the moldy bits and keep going? Or is this game over? Thanks!"

"I know this one, from owning cast iron frying pans. The charcoal is easy to scrape off. The surface may flake off when you rub off the charcoal, a little, but this is not a problem. It's just iron after all, and can be cared for in the same way as any cast iron pan, see google for some how-to guides on that. You should not put this in the dishwasher, because then git will get really rusty and need to be sanded + reseasoned."

"Hi Maangchi, thank you for the inspiring recipe! I started cooking 5 days ago, and now I have hung my Meju in my bedroom but I think the smell (like prawn paste, almost) is a bit too strong for me so I am considering hanging them outside. My question is do you think insects or animals will be attracted to the Meju? Should I find some kind of mesh to put over the Meju? For now I'm just going to hang them up on a hook on my covered deck and hope for the best. Thanks!"
