Stickburner Maintenance

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

In the spring of 2014 I built a trailer mounted reverse flow offset and painted the outside with rustoleum brushable high temp. My thinking was that it would be thicker than if I spray painted it and should hold up better. The cooking chambers are holding up ok but the firebox is just rusting through the paint. I was wondering what others are using on their smokers and if they had any tips to stop it from rusting.

Nice smoker. A lot of high temp paint says single coat for best results.

Happy smoken.

The last smoker I had (home made, 1/8" steel), I heated it up very hot then poured oil all over it.... I did that several times, kinda like you would season a black iron skillet...... It lasted up till I gave it to its new owner, 5-6years.......SB

I will give that a try, any certain type of oil, or just any cooking oil

I used, used vegetable cooking oil, but the old timer that suggested I do this recommended lard, but I thought it may go rancid........ SB

I would go with Flaxseed oil, I have always used it for seasoning cast iron and it works great.
