I put together my new toy (Rec Tec) last night and so far I am happy with my purchase. I was looking to buy a similar more expensive unit but the company (I wont name them in post) never returned my email or phone call 3 weeks. I heard good things about Rec Tec customer service so I gave them a try and was happy with the service provided (Thanks Jamie Williams) I think when I weigh in quality, price, options and service I may have made the better choice (yet to be determined).
So I will do the burn in tonight in the cold polar vortex over Maryland and then thinking I will season it by cooking some bacon. My question is should I put some cooking oil on the inside of smoker to help first season it? Any suggestions? I will ask Rec Tec as well but looking for your opinions on seasoning a pellet smoker.
