Finishing coat on a new offset fab job

Hi guys

I'm in the midst of completing a custom build for a horizontal offset.

I was thinking of leaving the steel raw finish and season it with canola oil spray later.

I have a question about the legs and the storage tray which i am putting at the legs. I would like to coat it with oil as well, but I don't think it will get up to temp to have a 'non tacky' coat.

I did think of going with high temp paint, but the firebox outer paint coat wouldn't survive a cook.

Appreciate any advice you are able to offer.

There are several companies that manufacture a high temp clear coat for exhaust systems that would give you protection yet keep that raw steel look. I like the raw steel look...

Thanks for the reply. I will check that out to see what's available.

What do you do with the legs normally?

I have a smoker built by The Metal Guys, TMGPits.com, of Knoxville, Tn. I got it with their off-road wagon package and the whole smoker from top to bottom, including the axles, is raw metal and coated in a high temp clear-coat. It's hard to see, but here it is at their shop the day I picked it up...
