    I am hoping you guys can help me I had posted a couple of questions in my roll call post but I don't think anyone has seen them. Sorry if you have and for a double post but...
    1. Now that I have my smoker built what wood would you suggest I season the smoker with?
    2. What size tank would you recommend for such a large unit? How long would a 20lb tank last?
    3. Would spraying pam on the grates and door to season work the same as slopping cooking oil on the unit?
    Sorry and thank you all for responses in advance.
    Happy smoking,

    Pam or cooking spray will work fine. As to wood for seasoning use what ever you have. You can even pick up dried small limbs from the yard. Just make sure it is a hard wood. As far as tank size I would stick to the 20# tanks and keep a spare. How a tank will last depends on temp your cooking at, outside temp, wind, how often you open the door, how much meat you put in it, if you are using water in the pan, if you are adding cold water to the pan. And on and on.

    Happy smoken.

    Thanks for the advice. I just want to make sure I don't screw up my investment right off the bat.
