  1. does anyone know of a good paint to repaint my fire box.my firebox paint is peeling, i have tried all those high temp, spray paints but they do not work.
     
  2. Hello , Dannylang . I worried about my FB's for a long time and finally gave up and used an old remedy I caught as a kid...

    I use Lard or Manteca ... when I start my fire I put my 'smudge pot on the fire box and use a little grill mop to coat the fire box with the melted liquid...[​IMG]

    Look :
    can see the line of discoloring , not a bad color , almost like a gun browning , instead of blueing...

    The grease protects the metal and even though there is still some oxidation , it's minimal , and extends the life of the FB. JMHO...
     
  3. Fire Boxes are hard to keep painted  So much heat.    I just repainted my entire smoker and refinished the wood, I have to touch up the fire box every so often just because of the heat.

    Here is what I use, and keep a can around for the touch ups.       Here are some pictures of my repaint

  4. looks good, i just redone mine with the same high temp paint, i hope it will stay for a while.
     
  5. Just keep an eye on your fire box and touch it up when needed, that's what I do and your smoker stays looking nice. Mine sits out in the weather so I know I to paint mine every so often.
