Reply to "New PG500 & Ash"

Instead of coating the inside with oil, I'd clean out,  refoil, and cook a couple of pork butts to help season it (bacon on zone 4 @ 300 for 30-40 minutes is good too).  New smoker temps will fluctuate partly due to the shiny interior.  Once it blackens it should settle down.  If you didn't sift your pellets through a colander clean out the hopper, vacuum, and sift the pellets.  The sawdust blows everywhere and can ultimately bind the auger.  (I vacuum firepot before every cook.)
