What is the best oil to season my new Oklahoma Joe with?
I use cheap veggie oil on bigger type smokers and Pam cooking spray on small smokers
A cooking spray works well.
I found generic canola oil sprays for a good price in the grocery store.
If your wiping down with oil, again canola is a good choice.
It has a higher smoke temp.
I used vegetable oil on my Longhorn. Just remember if you have a grease spout on the bottom to put something under it ,I didn't and stained the patio.
I use Grape Seed oil. I like the fact that it has a higher smoke temp.
I also use Weber Grilling spray oil after each cleaning for the grates and hard to reach spots. The rest gets rubbed down with the Grape Seed.
Good luck & Smoke ON!
I just used vegetable oil as well. Just watch the temp. If you get it too hot, the oil will burn (ie: ignite and actually burn). At least that is what someone told me once
That is true. Canola or Vegetable oil have a smoke point of 400 degrees, I doubt you will be getting your smoker that hot. Olive oil on the other hand smokes at around 325. So I do not recommend Olive Oil for seasoning nor for high temp cooking as olive oil gets a pungent taste we it is burned or reaches its smoke point. If you want to be super cautious go with Safflower oil, it has a smoke point of over 500 degrees.
Good Luck & Smoke ON!
