Well, it looks like I'm going to pull the trigger on another cookshack. A 50 to be exact.
What I was wondering is has anybody used cooking spray on the sides of their new cookshack to speed the seasoning process?

I use it and cooking oils on other smokers but I dont think it will do much to help on the inside of the cookshack. Maybe wrong I dont think it will hurt eather.

True, but a stick burner get's HOT.. and the way to season a steel/cast iron dutch oven, skillet, BBQ is with a low temp oil that will create that seasoning as the high heat burns it onto the surface. Cookshacks don't get hot enough to burn the oil on anything.. conversely, as GLH said.. will keep things (smoke ) from sticking to it properly.
A good dry, cleaned interior will develop a beautiful seasoning in short time. I say cleaned because most sheet metals are rolled to the proper thickness by huge/heavy rollers and the metal is lubicrated with an oil during rolling. I have no idea if CS cleans the metal before forming and welding. Therefore, I suggest a good detergent wash to remove any residual before seasoning. But, that's just my opinion.
