    I might have done something dumb to my smoker. I recently built a very hot fire to burn off the build up from the last couple smokes. The cook chamber temperature was around 500 degrees. After I was done I now have blistering inside of the cook chamber. Should I scrap this off and re-season?

    Yes , as DS says , scrape it off and re-season with a smaller fire and a lot less smoke . That looks like Creosote .

    I use a wide 'Putty Knife' (6") and peel it off and toss it in the garbage .

    After a good seasoning , you'll be good to go .

    Good luck and . . .
