Default Initial Blackstone seasoning question

So, I'm about to finally test out my Blackstone I got on Black Friday for the 1st time tonight (I know, I know, why in the heck has it taken so long...)

My question is: What's the best thing to do for it's original seasoning? Is there any specific kind of oil that's better to use than others? Should I oil it first, then throw some bacon on? (Bacon is going on regardless...). Any and all advice is much appreciated. Can't wait for this to be in the regular rotation!

I used flax-seed oil per the BS video on YT. I will say it did a great job, but after seasoning it was a bit sticky, I had to take my scrapper once cool and knock it back down to just the seasoning. Then I rinsed all the bits off and coated in veg oil. Just did my first cook last night and it did great! If it were me I would look at using veg oil, or PAM to hopefully reduce the stickiness.

Whichever oil you use, you want to bring it up to it's smoke point and hold it there. Going over will burn it. Hold at the smoke point for 20-30 minutes then let it cool untouched for at least an hour. Then do again. Repeat until you have a completely black grill.

I want one these so bad right now... Went and looked at Lowes today, and they have the 36" for $307, and the cover for $24. Gonna check online and see what I should be paying, then pull the trigger. Can't wait. You guys have been posting some great looking cooks on them!

I was wondering about seasoning it, so thank you very much for this recommendation. This makes perfect sense.

I used olive oil on mine. I oiled it good paying attention to the sidewalls too. I then heated it up until it smoked and shut it back down until it was cool to the touch. I did this 5 times the same way each time. Now after each use I spray with Pam while hot after a scrape and water cleaning. Again paying attention to the sidewalls.

If you can wait, keep an eye on Craigslist.

Check Wally World, some of the stores might still have the 28" ones for $50.

Just plug in your zipcode: http://brickseek.com/walmart-invento.../?sku=36323162

I found one on CL for $200, but it looks pretty beat up and the guy is firm on his pricing. I'd rather pay $100 more and know I am getting something in good shape. If he would come down a bit, I would probably go for it, and fix it up a bit.
