Put some cooking oil of just about any kind in a spray bottle and spray the inside or get crisco or lard on a rag and wipe it down liberally. Build a small fire and let it get to about 200 to 250F and try to maintain it for about four hours.
1. Go buy some brisket, ribs, and beer. (Don't forget the beer)
2. Wipe or spray the pit down with cooking oil and fire it up.
3. Heat pit for about three hours at 200-250 deg.
4. Give me a call and we will drink the beer and BBQ. (Don't forget to call)
Thanks a bunch for all yalls input on this,as for Little-bit I am always looking for a REASON too fire up the pit and drink some BEER,if you are ever in my neck of the woods(Pearland) shoot me a p.m and we will cook and drink it up.
