    Ya know when ive seasoned cast iorn, its good to scour the pan so the oil has a surface to cling/soak into. Then I heat / cool/ sand /oil and repaeat 3-4 times and it builds up the coating. With the charbroil smoker and alike I know they have some kind of finish, can I try to lightly sand it before seasoning? or is that pointless?

    You don't need to sand it just coat with Pam and fire it up...

    The few pits I've seasoned I've burned it out at high temp to get rid of any contaminants with a fire in both the fire box and the smoke chamber. I allowed to cool, wiped down all surfaces, coated with oil then fired it again for several hours to season.
