    Seasoning Question

    Later today I’ll be seasoning my new Meadow Creek TS70P. I think I have a handle on the overall process but wanted to get opinions on if I should oil the outside as well as the inside of the smoker? I’ve seen people do both and wanted to see what the pit prefers?

    On first seasoning do not oil the outside paint. Most high temperature paints need to off gas with some heat before they are fully cured.

      Thank you! Is oiling the outside then something to do periodically down the road? (I assume like seasoning cast iron)

      Once the exterior paint has been cured then it is okay to use oil. I do it all the time on my LSG and my Yoder. The initial restriction is because the oil will prevent the exterior paint from off gassing and becoming fully cured. On a side note, many seasoning instructions mention temperatures that you should not exceed during the initial seasoning as too much or too little heat affects the curing of the paint.

    For what it's worth this is what LSG recommends for the outside painted surface. I did it and it worked well. Read under Tips & Tricks.

      Good find Skip . I see the original curing instructions also mention the temperature restrictions I mentioned above and how that relates to the curing of the paint.

    I think the above advice is sound. What does MC recommend?

      Pretty similar instructions, they mention spritzing some water in as well, but basically oil the inside abd let it rice between 250 and 300.

    Here’s what Skip posted above and what Donw references.

      I try to read and follow the manufacturer's directions. For example, I avoid Coors Light at all costs.
      That is what I do for my Traeger.

        Don't we all avoid Kerr's Latt at all costs?

    The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


    Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

    Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


    The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

    The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


    The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

    Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

    We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.
