    I don't know how many of you guys watch pitmasters on TLC, but hte cool smoke guy has an awesome smoker. Calls it the smokevette or something like that. What kind of paint are they using for those fancy smokers? Anyone know?

    You'd need an oven for that right? Not something you could do at home for a large smoker?

    Powder coat paint is a dry paint that you have to apply a static electric charge to the metal to be painted for the paint particles to stick to it. Then they heat it so that it hardens. I'm sure it's more difficult than that, but that's what I was lead to believe.

    But yes, I saw that episode too. And it was powder coated.

    If you have a large enough oven, you could powder coat something that size. I powder coat several items that I use in my auto parts business, but most of them are small and I use a simple household elelctric oven.

    powder coating is REALLY easy! I have been painting cars, planes, helicopters, horse trailers, jeeps.... for years! I got my first powder coating setup about 6 yrs ago while building a jeep project...it really is as simple as Dude describes and the finish is tough as nails. as long as whatever you are powdercoating is VERY clean (I beadblast everything) its almost hard to mess up. Eastman is the company I bought my gun from (about $100) and also where I by all my powder from.
