After the burn out, sanded and wiped the inside clean with some rubbing alcohol to make sure there was no soot or any particulates left inside. Once it was dry, coated the inside of the barrel with some cooking oil with a paper towel. Loaded up fire basket with around 8 lbs. of mesquite charcoal and some lump. Let it smoke for 3 hours. I am just shocked at how efficient this thing is. Once I got it settled in at 225, I literally did not do a thing to adjust temperature. I just sat there in amazement at how it held temperature and continued to smoke like a chimney without any intervention whatsoever. Haven't fully decided how I am going to build an ash catcher under my basket yet, so I went the cheapo route and just used some foil. Worked fine.
