RW, morning..... I don't see why not..... If it has metals in it, they will not volatalize at cooking temps... anyway, conditioning the oil rub at 400 or so, will seal in or drive off "light" stuff.... and food is not coming in contact with it.... If it's too thick to spread evenly, thin it with mineral spirits.... then allow to dry before firing up the smoker.... That would be one heck of a bomb..... A smoker full of mineral spirit fumes... I'd want to see it from at least 2 blocks away..... Mineral Spirits is/was used in oil based paints as was linseed oil.... I used BLO and MS to condition cork grips on fishing poles... worked very well... then ate my lunch without washing my hands... night crawlers, maggots BLO..... I'm still here...
