    Off this weekend to get my new char smoker..and the mod stuff as well. My plan is before I put it together 100%, is to wash the insides etc.. with some mild detergent such as dawn and hot water etc.. to wash off some of the factory cutting oils. Next, I want to season it up but what's the most common method?

    I have heard using cooking oil on a rag, as well as rubbing bacon fat all along the insides of the cooking areas...So, what to use and where ??

    What do all the vet smokers out there do?????

    I think most here have just used vegetable oil, wipe on or sprayed either way. Some have just used Pam. Personally I just wiped her down with Wesson oil and let her burn. I did heat my Charbroiler up to close to 300 then wiped the "factory" oils completely off before I seasoned it.

    Yup... what Ozark said. Get it hot, then wipe of the gunk..... much easier. After that let it cool, clean it a bit, spray inside with Pam or wipe with veg oil, but Pam is super easy. [​IMG]

    Then run a 3+ hour smoke, heavy on the smoke. I ran mine at about 230° for 5 hours and used hickory lumps with the charcoal. I added hickory about once every 30-40 minutes. When I was done the entire inside was a beutiful mahagonay brown color.

    Well that easy enough. Heat her up,to loosen up the gunk,

    wipe off the gunk then spray her down

    then pour the smoke to her for a few hours.
