Good day everyone,
So I currently own this model:
Unit was purchased over the summer and have been used about 6 times so far smoking at around 200 - 225 degrees (according to the temperature gauge)
On my last session, I noticed the paint on the barrel interior bubbling along with the interior of my lid. At first, I thought it might have been a layer of stuck on carbon, but when I moved to peel it off, it was actually paint and they came off in large peels revealing the bare metal on the interior!
A quick call to Lowes customer service got me squared away and they sent me a replacement lid and barrel (had to reinstall all the hardware and the cheap filmsy door doesn't fit the new barrel )
Has anyone else experienced this? It seems to be poor surface prep at the factory before they applied the coat.
Are there any paint products out there that I can use to recoat the interior? I have chipping paint on the exterior as well, but that isn't as important as the interior.
Will update with photos once home.
