What do you ise for racks and how do you prep them?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I am thinking of 3/4" expanded metal, probably flat maybe 1/8 or 3/16 thick so that would be maybe 8 to 10 ga I think.

The racks will only be 18x26 and supported on the long sides.

 

How do you prep them before use? Just scrub with hot soapy water I assume to start, but do you do anything special after that?

 

They will be in an electric smoker.

 

thank you.

Supporting expanded metal..... should be supported on all sides, or it has a tendency to sag.... tack weld the metal also... Dave

I would season them with veg oil or whatever you have for oil and then run that puppy at high temp with smoke for a few hours.
