Hi all, well I know I'm getting a Char Broil American Gourmet Deluxe smoker tomorrow for Christmas. I have a few questions, first off I was just going to season it with Pam veggie oil spray, I'd be willing to season with peanut oil (brush it on) or ? Does it make a difference? Next should I season the outside of the smoker? Finally should I season the fire box as I've heard the paint will peel off on the first burn and then of course the rust is next. Come spring I will sand and repaint the firebox with a high quality paint if needed. Would appreciate some advice from members that have had some success with the seasoning process.
