I use Grape Seed oil. I like the fact that it has a higher smoke temp.
I also use Weber Grilling spray oil after each cleaning for the grates and hard to reach spots. The rest gets rubbed down with the Grape Seed.
Good luck & Smoke ON!
That is true. Canola or Vegetable oil have a smoke point of 400 degrees, I doubt you will be getting your smoker that hot. Olive oil on the other hand smokes at around 325. So I do not recommend Olive Oil for seasoning nor for high temp cooking as olive oil gets a pungent taste we it is burned or reaches its smoke point. If you want to be super cautious go with Safflower oil, it has a smoke point of over 500 degrees.
Good Luck & Smoke ON!
