Seasoning Smoker

Hey everyone,

I noticed some rust in the bottom of my offset smoker. It is made out of a LP tank, so I am not worried about it rusting through, but I do want to keep it in the best shape I can. I am having new shelves made for the inside, so was gonna go ahead and clean it out and reseason. Open for suggestions! I thought maybe steel brush and brush it down, sweep it all out, then set a fire and spray it with what? Pam, rub with vegetable oil, lard, what do you suggest?

PAM it damn it. Or cheap burgers will get the job done too. Come to think of it, chicken will do the job too.

Dave Klose told me to cook a pound of bacon and save the liquid fat...then paint it on the bottom of the cooker to re-season it...worked like a champ!

I used Pam on the shelves and the firebox.
