Rather than using bacon grease to season the unit, buy a couple of cans of Pam and spray all the surfaces; shelves, walls, etc. this is much easier. Don't over do it or you could cause a grease fire.

I used spray Pam with Earl and that is the plan with the new SS-2.

mep - I used PAM the first time I seasoned mine and found I was still getting a little rust build up around the seals and on the inside of the door. Recently re-seasoned with a light coating of bacon grease (plus a little light sanding) and I think it's working better - so far. However, YMMV!

Question for you guys with these smokers (mine is an assassin), how are y'all applying your smoking wood? In the chute, in the ash pan, or ????

Kevin of Superior has a video up on Youtube and he shows adding it to the ash pan once the pit is up to temp.

Unless I hear otherwise, this is how I will be doing it...

I put the wood in the ash pan after the fire has stabilized at the right temperature and right before I put the meat in the smoker. You can add wood for extra smoke later on in the cook.

Congrats on winning the SS-2!

I usually use lump in mine (less ash) but have used briqs before and they were fine. I light the lump in the chute using a MAPP torch.

I've added chunks of smoke wood in the chute and in the ash pan before and both locations work. Nowadays I just put them in the ash pan.

Good Luck! Superior makes a great cooker, I've been loving my SS-1 since I got it this Spring. I've been mixing in a few chunks of cherry or hickory right in the chute with pretty good success.

Get your party started brother. Windchill to minus 15 coming to The Panhandle which usually means freezing rain for the north Texas region. Stock up and make a memorable first smoke. Looking forward to the photos.

I have a big ol' bag of RO lump and some Stubbs briqs already plus some various chunks. Planning on pepper stout beef for Saturday's Texas/Baylor game and my first smoked meatloaf on Sunday to get....screw it, this guy has got to have a name so I'm going with Colt...Colt all broken in.

I'm planning on "working" from home tomorrow so I am there for the driveway delivery.

Getting Colt moved around to the backyard will prove to be challenging as access from the front yard to the back patio is tight. Worst case, I will roll Colt around the block while getting strange looks from my neighbors and roll it in from the cul de sac behind my house like we did with Earl.
