Seasoning a weber smokey mountain 18.5

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey folks, I'm ordering my wsm Saturday and am looking for directions on how to season it. I've seen some articles say to coat things and burn, and other ones saying to just do a hot burn. What exactly do I do? Thanks in advance.

I did a hot burn on mine, mainly to get a feel for temp control. It's been working like a champ and I love it!

 

Good luck and enjoy!

Do a nice burn with a few chunks of hardwood.  You will notice that when you first put it together it will rattle a lot, as you will have metal on metal friction, once it gets nicely seasoned the lid, and bottom sections, and door will have nice coating of grease and smoke residue, that will eliminate the rattling and prevent smoke from escaping. Good luck, smoke on.
