Not in my opinion. Just be aware that it will take a little time to build up some gunk on the inside.

You can skip the first burn too if you just wash it with Dawn and warm water.

I disagree with Harry on the cleaning of WSMs. I at least like to scrape the inside down once or twice a year and keeping the inside of the dome from too much build-up is a must. I had a WSM with a very thick layer of hard dark brown crud inside the dome that made it impossible to get the WSM up to temp.

That's my opinion only. YMMV.
