Some before and after pictures of seasoning and steam cleaning the new Lang BBQ Pit:

I did it a little backwards this time...
I sprayed it out with water, brushed it out with steel brush to loosen rust, then rinsed. Then fired up the cooker....got it to 200 degrees to dry it out, then applied peanut oil and pam...got that up to 300 and steam-cleanedit. Repeated it twice, loaded the firebox with wood, choked off the flue and dampers and let it go until the wood was burned up all night.

I thought it turned out perfect...the grill is now nice and dark..pics came out brighter than actuality.
The warmer box was a different story.....lots of oil residue...the warmer box just did not get hot enough to do as good of a job as the cooker itself.
