I did some searches and i couldn't find the answer to this question. I am about to order a new Lang 36" and i know i need to seasoning and clean it before i start cooking with it. I understand that the cooking areas need some oil sprayed on it for seasoning. so my question is 2 fold.
1. does the oil you season with affect the flavor? if i use canola or veggie oil vs. olive oil or pam or something does it make the flavor different?.
2. does the wood i use to season the smoker with like pecan or cherry or whatever make a flavor difference for future smoking?
thank all for any input you have to share.
