New vertical smoker not a "new" smoker (person)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

The manual says nothing about washing or wiping the interior, but to brush veg oil inside and follow the directions.

 

Then it says allow to cool FULLY before using again. ??? Why wouldn't I just add charcoal, wood and throw my meats in and get my first meal going from a hot smoker?

 

What am I missing?

 

 

   Thanks,

You need to do a "dry"  burn meaning no cooking the first time to burn off any machine oils etc. from the manufacturing process. Actually you should do this first and then let it cool and apply a seasoning oil like canola or vegetable oil and then build the heat again to around 350 or so for a few hours and then let it cool in order to season it.

Then it should be ready to cook on.
