I got a new charbroil charcoil cheapo drum guy. I didn't run it and burn off the manufacturing oil and forgot. I instead rubbed olive oil all around and let it burn for 2 hours to season it. Did I just season the manufacturing oil into the thing? It does seem to smell odd after a few hours.
Did I ruin my smoker/grill by seasoning before burning of manufacturers grease?

I found what I think is a great product "Spray Nine". It is a grill cleaner/degreaser and does a great job of cutting the grease. There are other products that work well too. If you are concerned, get some sort of good grill cleaner and some elbow grease and clean it and re-season it.
The Spray Nine seems to loosen grease and creosote very well for me.
