Pit maintenance

Postby Cas8101 » Thu Nov 01, 2018 10:26 am

How many of you rub the outside of your pit up with some PAM or other oil over your paint to protect it every so often? I have never done this but have seen some do I usually season the inside about once every few cooks. Does this make the paint last longer? Also I found an industrial thermometer that is resetable and accurate to +\-1% that goes by the brand name of TREND made in the USA, has anyone heard of or used these?

Only thing I've ever done to the outside of my smokers is sand them down every couple years and respray in high-temp black.

Haven't seen the Trend unit but found one on e-bay. Cheep enough to give it a try. Like the fact you can recalibrate it for sure.

I spry the outside with Pam two or three times a year, it's better than watching the metal rust.
