    So I've picked up a Vasconia pot from Walmart and about to cut and drill to finish up the build process.

    I want to paint it to give that glossy look to match the smokey joe.  I noticed a lot of people are using the VHT Engine Enamel paint and also Rust-Oleum high heat spray paint as well.

    I'd like to avoid having to buy a primer, paint, and clear coat.

    Has anyone just prepped the surface and sprayed it with glossy black paint and did it turn out somewhat similar to the Weber finish?  Any help would be appreciated, thank you!

    I did not prime my pot. I simply sprayed it with Rustolium Gloss Black High Heat paint.  No issues after many smokes.  I did clean the surface well and buffed with a scotch brite pad so the paint had a "key" to hold on to.  Still looks great. Very close to the Weber enameled steel finish.

    Great news.  Just ordered that same paint from Amazon.  Thanks!
