I just pruchased my MES last night and was reading the instructions in the manual on seasoning. This morning I started the process as described in the manual. While I was waiting, I decided to do some reasearch since I'm totally new in the realm of smoking. Having found this site, I found istructions stating that to season the MES, I needed to coat the inside of the smoker with cooking oil. This was a step left out of the instructions in the manual. That being said, I'm now wondering if I shoulder re-season the MES coating the inside with the cooking oil or am I ok following the intitial instructions in the manual? Thanks.
