I'm seeing alot of cool ideas as far as paint jobs on the UDS. I figured I'd start a thread for them. I shoot bows so I did a take on a product from Burt Coyote company that makes "Lumenock" so behold the Burnt Coyote.

I have a vinyl cutter and made the template. I sprayed with High Temp Rustoleum red paint, let dry and peeled of the vinyl.

It is actually valspar burgundy from Lowe's that comes in a spray can. Most people think you have to use high temp. paint on a smoker but as long as you keep the temp. under 450 deg. the paint is fine! If you have a grease fire or something in your smoker then you will be repainting!

just for safety I would want to use a paint that was approved for cooking

Duplicolor High Heat Engine enamel on the drum and regular Krylon BBQ paint on the lid. Doesn't have to be high heat but I liked the color (Daytona Yellow) and it was only $5 a can.

You don't paint the inside, you paint the outside.


Besides, I don't think you would find ANY paint that would be safe to cook on.

Thats a good looking uds!

RdKnB-- I did not know there were paints approved for cooking! The paint on the outside has nothing to do with the inside as long as the inside isn't painted.

Thanks! The door is in case you want to add more wood chips/chunks or charcoal if need be. Just nice to have if needed without taking lid off and losing all your heat.

That is schweeet! I'm gonna have to do this to ya
though for 2 reasons not just the idea of the paint job but that you are a bow shooter too. I'm a bow shooter/hunter.
I have to build two and I'm tryin to come up with a scheme. One has to be a Steeler (not my decision) sfp and the other a Browns sfp.
Great job!

I was cleaning in my shop and found a roll of 1/8 pinstripe tape and 2 rolls of blue masking then stumbled across an almost full can of high temp chevy orange leftover from an engine build...the rest just sort of happened!!!
