yeah you will want to season it. coat it generously with PAM. Don't have to do it before every smoke.
Well, when I got out of work tonight, I picked up the wife and headed to Home Depot to pick up a "surprise"... Wanted to get an ECB, but wanted her onboard for a smoker. She ended up talking me into getting a slightly more expensive Brinkmann Vertical Square Smoker instead. It's in the back of my ttruck tonight. Tomorrow I will put it together and I guess I'm supposed to burn it in or something to burn off the manufacturing schmutz, right?
I also saw somewhere in here that someone sprays the inside of their smoker with Pam. Is that part of the burn in/seasoning process or before each smoke?
