Newbie in O-H

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by peleepassage, Jan 4, 2015.

  1. Scott from Cbus here. I'm a greenhorn to all of this so have been reading a lot. Santa brought me a Masterbuilt "30 ES for Christmas. Today is pre-seasoning day. I'd love to throw some meat in after the seasoning but should I cool it and clean it first?

    Plan on doing a lot of fish and poultry, and look forward to some cheese. Any help is appreciated.

    Welcome from Canada, Scott.


    The purpose of seasoning is to remove any gunk from the manufacturing process. I would just wipe it out and fire it up.

    If you are going to try any project, I suggest you type it in the search bar and you will get several posts of different methods and you can choose the one that suits your rig and tastes best.

    I look forward to your posts!

    It may be too late, but it is fine to go straight from seasoning to cooking, no cool down needed.
