I am moving on from my propane smoker due to the cold winters here in Michigan. I just purchased a new smoker, a Masterbuilt Sportsman Elite 40'' Bluetooth Smart Digital Electric Smoker, (say that 3 times real fast) from BassPro and it will be here in 5-7 business days. I've searched the forum and have made some notes on how to season it and found some great advice.
What I couldn't find is do I do anything to help preserve the integrity of the smoker itself. My question to all of you experts; Is there something I should do prior to turning it on for the first time? I'm thinking along the lines of door gaskets, sealing any seams with food grade silicone, anything with the wiring, etc.
Thank you in advance
