I have never done anything on the inside but I have used vegetable oil on the outside of two smokers that were painted prior.

:yth: I use bog standard cooking oil in a spray bottle. Heat the thing up just a tad spray the heck out of the inside and jack up the heat to cooking heat and let it run for a couple of hours. You can make use of the time and do something fatty in there as well at the same time.
