Adding some color

Post by greenespice84 » July 5th, 2013, 7:58 pm

Ok, I'm stiil in the design phase of my 120 gal smoker/20x40 pipe(it's a matter of price and avaliblity). And while I'm a major fan of classic black and stainless(ummm, stainless), I want to add some color to this bad boy! Really what I want to do is a classic black powder coat with a custom logo design taped out and spr :rulz: ayed on the doors. In my searching for high heat colors, I found engine enamel w/ ceramic. Seems very promising, but is it safe to use on the pit? I'll post designs in a few days after they stop buzzing in my head. :rulz:

:welcome:

In my experience, I've seen many different paints used. I would have to say as long as the paint is ONLY on the out side of the CC you could just about anything. If the FB isn't insulated I don't think there is a paint made that will stay on it for long.
