Suggested High Temp Paint?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Greetings SMF, and Happy Friday!!!

I posted about some peeling paint on the lid of the FireBox on my new OK Joe Highland:
http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/246416/peeling-coating-during-seasoning-process-ok-joe-highland-help#post_1564017

 

In that discussion, it was mentioned that the paint that OK Joe uses is not a good quality. I am looking for some suggestions for a high quality Heat Resistant Paint suitable to use on the outside of a Charcoal/Wood Smoker.

 

From being involved in this forum for a short time I see that there is a lot of experience here, and I am hoping that you great people will be willing to share some of your experience/knowledge.

 

Cheers,

Morgan.

I think a lot of people use Rustoleum high heat - ultra paint. The ultra has a bit of a gloss to it.
I always had some problems keeping paint on my OJ firebox.

Instead of engine paint you would be better off using high heat exhaust paint. Like VHT found at auto parts store. My can says it's good to 2000 deg. I have painted exhaust manifolds with it and it seems to hold up. VHT Flameproof Coating. Engine paint is only good to 500-600 degrees generally.

The only VHT I could find on Amazon was in metallic colors:
http://smile.amazon.com/VHT-SP451-Anodized-Blue-Color/dp/B002NU4CWW/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1464037402&sr=8-3&keywords=High+Temp+Paint

But I did find this 2,000 Degree Exhaust in black:

I'll keep my eyes open in my local auto stores.

 

Thanks Wichita Chief!

VHT SP102 Flameproof Coating flat black. $14.38 on Amazon. Paint for a fireplace would work also. I bought some from my fireplace dealer to touch up my insert. I can't find that paint in my mess. I have used the VHT on heddars and liked it. That's probably what I'd use on my OKJ when I touch it up.
