Gotta newbie Q here. been here awhile looking around and getting ides.. and i notice rust!!
my Q is , has anyone given thought to using powder coating? grant it, most smokers are huge!! noticed mentioned that most fire boxes rust out quicker then the smoking chamber.
Eastwood company has a home powder coating system..
i know you wouldn't do the inside of the smoker. but the Durable finish of powder coating,makes it a great protection against rust. compared to the cost of rattle can pain!, yea its costly.but its great protection. and the results are longer!! would be great for a fire box IMHO....
