It’s taken weeks but after receiving my YS640S in October I finally found the time to season it and then take it for its first cook. After I did the initial seasoning run I let it cool down with the lid closed. Then, about an hour and a half after it shut off I started it back up to bake on the seasoning. Right at start-up a lot of smoke came out from underneath the smoker near the pellet box. There was no smoke in the pellet box itself. The air was very still and I could see the warm smoke “pooling” and filling the space underneath the smoker. I didn’t see that on the initial burn-in or this run today. Just wondering if this is normal or if I should be watching for something? The smoke did stop after 2-3 minutes after it first started.
