BFD is right, nothing to worry about. I usually clean mine just before it starts to flake.

WSMs don't need seasoning.

It was just some smokey goo from your smoke. Some people don't pay any attention till it builds up and starts to flake off. Then they worry about their porclin coating is falling off.[/quote:2asdnm9p]

I disagree. They need at least of 1# bottle of Wolfe Rub Bold sprinkled all over them before the first use or you'll need my Mrs to show up with a sage stick and dance around it to purge the evil smokies away

It was not rust, as previously has been said, it is just an ugly brown color the gunk on the lid gets. Either hose it off or wipe it down with some paper towel and simple green..

You didn't know that WSM's have a self clean cycle?

I check my lid before each cook. If it's black and glossy, I know I'm good. If I see any brown, I'll wad up some aluminum foil and scrub it out.

really??? you don't spray or brush with oil and let it season the inside ??? I would have thought you should do that with any metal cooker?

Gary normally you'd be right, but the WSM's are enameled.

I was just trying to point it out to you that it was enameled, buddy. You don't have one so how would you know?? I wasn't trying to make you out to be stupid. You do that great on your own! [smilie=a_chuckle.gif]

You flunked your homework! You did just the opposite of what the instructor told you to do on your first test!!

But it looked like you did pass your first test on them loins though!

I made a new years resolution not to make fun of those less fortunate than myself (i.e. the dumb and ugly)... and of course, those born without a brain (larry) ... (gee, larry fits both those categories) guess I shot that resolution all to hell already! oh well...

Gary,

I've had mine four years and I've only had to clean off the inside of the lid three times. This coming spring though I'm going to take the power washer to it and do the inside of the center section and the lid.
