paint or no on the inside of smoker?

My nameless smoker was painted flat black before I bought it.  Used it several times and have noticed paint bubbling and cracking.  I suppose the paint was applied during a high humidity moment.  My question is, once I grind the paint off, should I paint it again, or leave it bare.  It seems to me that given the paint problem is on the smoke side (top), it will get coated pretty quickly anyway.  Thoughts?

That is probably not paint on the inside.  More likely a buildup of grease.

No paint for the inside of a smoker.

Brush it down, clean it up, and re-season it with cooking oil or lard.

Good luck and good smoking.

You talking about inside the smoker? If so, just leave it bare and season with veg. Oil.

It's paint, but thanks for the advice.  I'll grind it off and season it as you both suggest.  Thanks again.
