Found this Forum after searching how to properly season my new Smoker.
I currently reside in Eastern PA (USA) and just purchased my second smoker.
I got into Smoking Meat when I visited my brother and a friend of his had brought his Smoker over to a weekend event, and was making everything from Meat, to Corn, to Salsa (smoked inside of an Avocado).
I was not sure how much I would use it myself on my own, so I didn't want to dump a lot of money into my first smoker, so I made one out of two Terracotta Pots like this one:
I ended up using it way more than I thought I would and loved coming up with all kinds of ideas of items I could smoke.
After a season of fun smoking in this little pot, I decided to purchase a nice sized Smoker and picked up the Oklahoma Joe Highland Smoker.
I look forward to many more enjoyable smoking experiences and will be reading these forums for some great ideas!
