I finally got a chance to season my smokers that I built about a month ago. They have been going for about eight hours and no issues yet. These things are very easy to build and very little has to be done in order to keep the temps constant. I need to raise my baskets a few inches but that is an easy fix. I also wasn't impressed with all of the little pieces in the lump charcoal I picked up from SAMS club. That being said I have had to shake the basket on both smokers once and adjust the air flow a couple of time but this is more of fine tuning the smoker the first couple times you use it in my opinion. I had fun making that video on my pulled pork a few weeks ago I decided to document my seasoning with another video. I will post it as soon as it is up on Youtube. Hope it helps someone with questions on seasoning the smoker in the future.
