As far as splits go, he recommends cutting a full size in half and then splitting that. We also discussed water pan theories and spritzing. That was more of a back and forth discussion rather than a solid Q&A.

I asked a similar question via email concerning the linseed coating/rust. I was told by Ashley (pretty sure she's JD's wife) that both the linseed finish and the powder coat will eventually start to rust. She did say that reapplications would help with the linseed version. I was also talking to a fella here in Indy that cooks on a Primitive Pit and he suggested using rendered tallow to add a protective coating versus linseed.
