I know this is a little older thread, but can anyone tell me what paint / coating is being used? Is it the same for the inside and outside? I see a lot of smokers that are painted on the inside including the grates it looks like. I thought paint on the inside was a NO NO???

 

If the inside is painted including the grates, but prevents this from flaking off on the food?

 

Thanks,

The outside is painted with krylon heat resistant paint. No paint inside. Cleaned inside really, Really well. Burned hot fire. After cooling, vegetable oiled the inside and grates, burned a hot fire again.

Thanks for the quick response. Great looking build as this gives me inspiration. Points to you!

 

How did you cut the end piece that got welded to the ends of the smoke chamber and fire box. Due to the thickness, I cant imagine cutting them by hand and getting them perfectly round???

 

 Also wondering what you used to cut the door on the smoke chamber. Besides a welder and cut off wheel, any special tools you can recommend that?

The cc ends I had torch cut, where I got pipe. I used 1/4" for the firebox end as it was easier for me to fabricate. I used right angle grinder, cut off blade, and recirc saw with 'toothed' metal blade(s).
