I just saw the review for the Horizon 16" Classic. My wife (lovely woman that she is) got me one yesterday for my birthday. I'm burning it in right now.
The guy who delivered it suggested adding some lard during the burn-in process to give off some grease. Anyone else heard of anything like this? How would I do it? Would I add it right on the fire? (I'm using lump charcoal and some hickory chunks). Could I use bacon grease in place of lard?
