Default Shirley making a 2,600 mile Journey!

She was loaded up last week so I'm hoping to see her in the Northwest in the coming days.

Thanks to all the SF owners for keeping the pump primed for me with their cooks and pictures!

What was everyone's experience for seasoning and paint curing?

Do you need to worry about setting the paint or "let 'er rip"

It may be perfectly fine but I am not going to take that chance. My plan is to keep it under 250 for 2-3 hours and then cook something hot and fast.

Most high heat paint needs to be "cured" to set the paint to the steel or primer. Typically you should run a cooker with fresh paint at around 225 - 250 for 2-4 hours to cure the paint. To high of a heat at first and you take a chance of the paint peeling or cracking (not bonding). If done right the paint on a pit will last a very long time.

I just built a small fire a burned it all morning. Never added a oil or anything to the inside since there will be plenty of smoke and meat juices inside real quick. Just keep the fire small. The next day I lit it up again and did the same thing and it seemed to work just fine. My paint of the firebox is all rusted after 6 months but it sits outside in the weather and I build some big fires :)...

Curious as to what it's costing to ship 2600 miles?
