I only mention oil because I believe that Lang and other smoker manufacturers recommend it to prevent rust etc. Maybe this isn't necessary. Thanks everyone for the tips!
nobody suggested that was necessary...so why ask if you're not gonna take the advice?
other cookers are made from other materials. i would not spray any oil inside my WSM's.
simply pick what you want to cook and fire it up!
congrats and enjoy!
