Thumbs down I Made A BIG Boo-boo

So I did a cook not this past, but the weekend before that, and somehow forgot to cover my smoker back up. The past 4 days has been a steady rain.

Obviously, I had to let the smoker cool off before I could throw the tarp back on it, but we got busy with wedding stuff and I completely forgot about it.

Would a real hot fire help soak it up any or do I have to pray to the BBQ Gods that my smoker doesn't rust out?

Depends on the type of BBQ you have and the type of metal exposed. Firing it up will definitely drive moisture out. If you want to avoid rusting, covering it up and leaving it wet wouldn't be a good idea.

With a Lang, you'll be fine. It'll take more than one rainstorm to rust that bad boy out.

If you do get some surface rust, just spray some cooking spray on there while it's hot. Most of the time, the only place we'll ever get rust on ours is the firebox. And that's after cooking a contest where it rained for 24 hours.

A few times a year I take a paper towel with shortening an put on a heavy layer all over the inside everywhere and fire it up nice and hot to season it and keep it from rusting inside. The outside I touch up all the time with High Temp spray paint flat black to keep it nice and pretty.

A Lang? ooooooooh........I think you should pay a penalty. You should trade your lang to another brethren for an ECB for a month (after you have cleaned it up)...

I, unfortunately, am not close enough to you to complete the penalty.

Trust me, that thing has been babied ... minus this past week.

See what getting married will do to you? Get caught up with all that mess and forget about the important stuff (no my fiancee does not read this site )

I'd let her read it. Every good woman should know her role in the relationship. If things ever go south she has to know which girl is being kept.

Wow, just got back home to Florida after a quick work trip to Charleston, if I had known I could have picked her up, brought her home and cleaned her up for you. Probably have to schedule another trip - could have gotten it back to you about - - - Christmas.
