Are you cooking anything like a fatty to season it? You want to get a coat of grease on there right away.

Oh, and a nice looking build.
I wiped down the inside with vegetable oil then about a hour in I threw a pound of bacon on. Not sure I trust the thermostat, After a hour at 225-250 the bacon is burnt crisp. Only other bacon ive done was wrapped so maybe at that temp it would be done just laying on the grate?
