I just sold my Trailmaster horizontal smoker with modifications to purchase the new Trailmaster vertical smoker. It even came with the cover and it was $30 cheaper. Out of the box it looks to be built better than the horizontal. I only had the smoker less than two months before wanting the vertical. So far I've painted the entire firebox and crossover with Rustoleum high heat grill paint and used the Rutland sealant to put the firebox together. Considering that the highest the temperature will get is when I season it, should I paint the vertical chamber or not? Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
