its not rusting or anything i just want to give it that "like new" look again

do you think regular paint would be ok, the smoker never really gets above 250*
Good Morning Mr. Horse!
My direct answer to your question is "I don't know." But to pontificate just a little, I recently repainted my Char Broil. I considered the oven proof paint for the fire box and cooking chamber (outside only of course) and then the Rustoleum type for the legs etc. My logic may be flawed but I painted the whole thing with the oven proof type of paint. My thought is that it must be pretty tough to stand up against that heat so hopefully it will offer more protection for the support structrue as well. It has held up nicely now for about a month. My $.02. Have a great weekend.
crazyhorse, I would still paint with a good high-heat paint. On occasion I've run my smoker at 400* to cook poultry. That is the cooking grate temperature, near the fire at the bottom I'm sure the temperature got high enough to burn regular paint.
well i got it painted and it looks SWEET!!! i used a gloss black on it
i also screwed up the temp guage by playing around with the probe and broke it so i just painted that whole thing silver including the face :lol:

i use a digital probe through the top vent for my temp monitoring anyways

i havent even fired it up yet, will prolly do some cooking this coming weekend and will post results then is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
