Seasoning smoker

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by boisblancboy, Dec 30, 2013.

  1. For the first burn on my new smoker I plan on it just burning all the fumes and nasties off of it. The second they recommend coating the inside with cooking oil, which I will do. My question is I am thinkin of coating the outside of the box with oil too, will this help it prevent rusting? I don't have a place to store it other than outside with a cover over it. Even with a cover you know it will get some moisture so I'm just trying to take more steps to keep my unit in good condition as log as possible.

    I would not put oil on the outside, will only attract dirt and lots of it.  Keep it covered, and deal with rust as it appears.
     
  3. I didn't think of the dirt attraction but your right. I could always just take some steel wool, clean the rusted spot and spray paint it.
