Default Finally!

My WSM 22.5" arrived today (first smoker), I am very impressed with the size and quality and very happy so far with my purchase.

I've seen a few threads on seasoning my new grill before first cook; any brethren got any advice for this?

Get to cooking Fred! Like Bludawg said, no need to waste fuel on seasoning. Maybe wash it out with warm water and Dawn, in the event there may be residue from the manufacturing process.
I have never cooked on a new WSM, so mine all get a thorough washing before I cook on them.
BTW, you are going to love the ease of cooking on a WSM. Great pits.

Might run a little hot till it seals up good. Usually takes 5-10 cooks. Have fun!!

Thanks H.M. I will do this b/c I felt a bit of an oily film on the inside when I assembled.
