Default One Quick Question

Okay really two questions! 1. Should i have my grills in the pit when I season it? 2. Was I right in only painting the outside of both the firebox and cooking chamber?

I just looked at a couple of pics of pits and the inside of the firebox looked painted.

Thanks!

It depends, but I doubt you need to season the grill. You may need to season the grill if it's homemade (like expanded metal or something).

You were correct in only painting the outside.

I would never ever paint the inside of a grill or pit or any vessel that's going to contain my food! Paint (especially paint designed for painting metal) releases toxic fumes as it dries - even more fumes than galvanized steel under heat!

I season my pit by heating it up to a high temp and then rubbing it down with lard while it's hot - and then keeping it hot for a while after word. This creates a nice layer of protein polymers to protect the steel from oxidization. I have never seasoned my grills. But they are porcelain coated so I figure that's one less thing to worry about.
