should I paint new offset smoker?
Just got myself a new offset smoker. Been reading that I should give it a coat of rust-proof paint so I picked up some high heat rustoleum spray paint.
Should I spray it all over during assembly and wait for it to dry before attaching firebox? Or should I just put it all together and season it first?
After spraying How long after spraying should I wait before I fire it up?
In my old smoker, I always sprayed it down with some vegetable oil before every cook and that seemed to help keep it in decent condition.
