New Klose 20x30

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by roots75, Jan 23, 2007.

  1. Howdy all for my birthday my fiance got me a brand new klose backyard smoker 20x30. I have been BBQing all my life and am decent at it, but when it comes to smoking i have little experiance. I am fine on wreckng some meals and learning as i go with trial and error but i dont want to season a $1500 dollar smoker wrong.

    What Im looking for is some help on the seasoning I understand to wipe it down with oil but I need some more info on temp and how to maintain the right temp?

    If some of you can help guide me through the complete proccess i would be forever gratful !

    Hope all are well

    Welcome to SMF roots75!!! Sounds like your fiance is a definate keeper with a present like that.
  4. A keeper, no kidding. 10 years ago I told my wife I wanted to replace the ole ECB with something bigger and better. She said' "you have a welder, build one." 10 years later, I'm still building. Well, more like perfecting. Sure has been rewarding at supper time though.

    Welcome aboard, Pretty nice birthday gift.

    Sometime I wonder when we are given gifts like that is it because they want to give us a gift or because they like it when we cook

    Either way I suppose it is not back because we still end up with a smoker

    Hey roots75,
    I have that exact smoker 8) What I did, and what they'll tell ya at Klose is to rub it down with bacon grease and fire it with apple wood @400 degrees for about an hour, and then 250 for about 2 hrs. I just love my unit and I'm sure you will too! Let me know how it goes :D
