It's almost time to paint my smoker build and i wanted the community opinion on what is the most reliable high temp paint that won't break my bank.
VHT: High heat paint mostly used on cars, An amazing array of different colors
Temperature: 1300°F-2000°F (704°C-1093°C)
Applications: Headers, Exhaust Manifolds, Piston Domes, Inside Heads
Rustoleum: Makes a product specifically for Grills, very few color options, i think this is the go to for most people.
Rust-Oleum® Specialty High Heat Spray retains color and finish up to 1200º F. Apply to grills, wood-burning stoves, radiators, engines or other metal items. Provides rust protection.
POR 15: Mainly used for cars. Fewest of color options. some people swear by this.
POR-15® High Temp Paint is capable of withstanding extreme temperatures up to 1200°F and will resist cracking, chipping, and peeling. It is also extremely weather, salt and moisture resistant.
P.S. Some people use different temp paints on the Fire Box and Cooking Chamber due to heat differences. Why not paint the whole thing in what ever you put on your Fire Box? Is there a reason?
Thanks for your help on this
