Correct Temp for Seasoning
« on: November 12, 2022, 01:01:34 PM »
I read the section on seasoning your smoker and the steps to take. It was written in 2014 and maybe the highest temperature available then was 250f.
I am waiting for my #5 D wi-fi to be shipped, and it has 325f as the top temp. Do I season at 325f? Will that temp cause the wood to ignite and not smoke/season it properly?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I don't see any benefit in going over 250 to season. The smoke will adhere better at the lower temperature I think.
