Thank you both. I appreciate it. I purchased the SM025 Smokette Elite. I will not purchase another pellet smoker. Not that they are bad, just not my style. So out of curiosity why wouldn't you want to preheat the smoker? I was reading it could take up to 30 minutes to hit temperature so that was my plan.
What is the best way to season it? I've heard some spray the inside with cooking oil before turning it on. The manual says to just turn it on for 4 hours at 225. Or were you meaning to season it with the cheap piece of pork? Wanted to clarify that.
