I have used two bags of Kingsford briquettes, about half a bag of Royal Oak briquettes and one bag of lump (Cowboy) but am going to pick up some Lazzari lump.

I think you guys might be right. I noticed that my SnP which hasn't been lit since the brisket I smoked the first week of November is getting a little moisture in it which is turning the inside coating (seasoning) a little wet and oily feeling. I know the inside of this smoker was dry when I cleaned it out after the brisket. I guess I'll have to keep an eye on it in the damper weather.

Thanks again.
