I recently painted my offset smoker with 1200F high heat spray paint. I have not used it since I painted it.

Should I spray the outside with PAM? Or just the inside? How does that work?

Oh and the reason I painted it was because the offset was building up some rust, so I took care of it and decided what the heck and painted the whole thing.

I don't think you want to be spraying PAM on paint. Can't think of any good that can come from it.

As for the inside, if it looks like it could use some seasoning, brush off the loose stuff, spray it or rub it with veggie oil, lard or bacon grease, then heat it up to 300-350 or so and let it cool back down, and you should be good to go...

Cheers!

Pam works just fine if that's what you have to use and it's easy.
Like day_trippr says, get her up to 300-350* I held mine there for a while but I don't think you have to. It will season more as you use it. The only time you would season the outside would be if you didn't paint it. Some folks swear by seasoning the firebox in this way instead of painting it.

Usually you spray pam on the fb after you have burnt off the paint that is pretty common. Basically it just seasons the exterior metal like a cast iron skillet.
