    Hi Guys,

    So I ended up with the Home Depot bargain smoker... it's a Char-Broil H20 Smoker, or something to that effect.

    I've assembled it, and read through the instructions and am left with a question. I could swear I read somewhere on this site that the smoker needs to be prepped before it's initial use... something like oil the inside down run it at ~200-250 for two hours, and then at ~400 for the final hour.

    I can't remember offhand what the steps were, and I can't find the thread where I had read about the procedure. Could someone please share the procedure for prepping a new smoker, and whether or not it needs to have wood chips added during the process?

    Thanks again guys!

    I was a little hasty on that post. I found the thread.
