Hello all, new member here.

A little about myself, love to cook, especially meat. Been working on my own barbecue spices and rubs for a couple years now, and recently the wife realized that I wasn't going to shut up until I had a smoker in back yard. I WON ONE! WOOHOO! So, going with the 22 1/2 WSM as I am a weber fan and might as well add to the collection. Looking forward to hearing and learning from the members here and I hope I can add to the conversations now and again. Anyways, have a good day to all and keep on smoking (or get started as is my case).

Hearty welcome Sir. Glad you made it over. That king sized WSM should be a great addition to the arsenal.

Thanks for the welcome guys. My smoker is coming in next week, anybody got any tips on first run seasoning? Should I just run charcoal or should I throw in some cherry wood too or maybe some fat?

I never seasoned either of mine, I'd just throw a pork butt on there and cook away to christen the new smoker.

Yeah I would have to agree, the more you use your smoker the more seasoned it gets.

Well I have been previously chastized about this..but on any new pit I like to mop down the inward parts with cooking oil or on small pits squirt down with PAM and cook a few split chickens. Sombody said the WSM's are porcelain on the inside or something like that and do not need any grease swabbing. That supposed to come from the owners manuel or some other exotic source. Keep us posted on it.

Thanks for the opinion bigwheeler, I think I was more concerned with whatever chemicals might be in there when it shows up. As far as putting a coating on it, I'm not really going for a cast iron thing, which by the way use flaxseed oil trust me on this. I just kind of wanted to burn through anything that might be in there and seal up any "out of round" air leaks. Thanks for the reply.
