Looking Good and I see a little smoke - does it draw in the neighbors looking for dinner

I painted it then let it sit for a few days then fired it up for a few hours to really cure the paint. I took a wire cup mounted to the polisher to the 6 racks and got them cleaned and then seasoned them with Crisco. The seasoning of the paint seasoned the racks also. While it was doing all of this I filled a pump sprayer with vegetable oil and soaked down the entire inside of the smoker so that seasoned the smoker body as well. Then this past weekend we fired it up and did some cooking: ribs, picnic pork, and some sausage. My neighbor brought the sausages over (hand-made) and they cooked for a few hours and all of it came out great. I was very impressed.


I only put the fire in the center section of the smoker and cooked on the center racks. This worked out very well and I was pretty surprised at how it was pretty easy to control the temperature.
