Hey Everyone, My new smoker should be getting here today. I am seriously excited and can't wait to get home. I know that the first thing that I need to do is season the smoker. After reading through the posts it looks like you need to spread oil on the walls of the smoker and then bring the heat up with some wood chips in the pan. So here are my questions. 1. Does it matter what type of oil? 2. Should I (can I) have food in the smoker during the seasoning? I thought I read somewhere in the forums that someone put a briskett in during the seasoning. I am planning on running to the store on the way home and looking at the meat selection and am wondering how soon before I can begin the smoke. I didn't want to wait until I get the manual out!
