seasoning smoker

post #1 of 9

I have a new Masterbuilt electric smoker. What is the best way to season it before I cook in it for the first time?

My instructions said to cook it empty (no water) at 275 for 3 hours and add 1 cup of wood chips during last 45 minutes. Let cool, and then good to go.

don't forget to take a dilluted dish soap to the inside&outside to remove the MFG. oils that are still on it.than fire it up with a dry run.

I say to just start a really hot fire and then I've heard spray it down with pam or bacon greese and then start a fire. But all you want to do is get the new off and the seasoning will be done.Smoke On.

I agree with Bob that after washing the insides down with soap and water, to give the insides a good squirt of peanut oil or Pam, to get a nice coat started on the metal.

Seasoning a new smoker

Good luck on your first smoke in it. What a coincidence, I blogged about seasoning new smokers last week.


An electrical smoker is a bit easier because no fire is needed, but same principals involved. How do Electric smokers hold up in winter? I have a buddy that has one that gets stuck at 200 degrees.

Mine works fine but we don't get much below 30' in the winter, well maybe some times. The MES is insulated, that helps.
