I am getting ready to preseason my MES and my Amaze-n-pellet smoker and I was considering doing them at the same time. I've read the instructions for both and it left me with a question. The instructions for the MES says to add a cup of wood chips. Why is this step necessary? My plan was to load and burn the Amaze-n-pellet smoker instead of adding wood chips to the MES. Do you guys think that will properly preseason my MES or do I NEED to add wood chips directly into the MES. Thanks in advance.
