For the first burn on my new smoker I plan on it just burning all the fumes and nasties off of it. The second they recommend coating the inside with cooking oil, which I will do. My question is I am thinkin of coating the outside of the box with oil too, will this help it prevent rusting? I don't have a place to store it other than outside with a cover over it. Even with a cover you know it will get some moisture so I'm just trying to take more steps to keep my unit in good condition as log as possible. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
