Hello , Dannylang . I worried about my FB's for a long time and finally gave up and used an old remedy I caught as a kid...


I use Lard or Manteca ... when I start my fire I put my 'smudge pot on the fire box and use a little grill mop to coat the fire box with the melted liquid...:icon_eek:


Look :  You can see the line of discoloring , not a bad color , almost like a gun browning , instead of blueing...


The grease protects the metal and even though there is still some oxidation , it's minimal , and extends the life of the FB. JMHO...

Fire Boxes are hard to keep painted  So much heat.    I just repainted my entire smoker and refinished the wood, I have to touch up the fire box every so often just because of the heat.


Here is what I use, and keep a can around for the touch ups.       Here are some pictures of my repaint

Just keep an eye on your fire box and touch it up when needed, that's what I do and your smoker stays looking nice. Mine sits out in the weather so I know I to paint mine every so often.
