painting my offset

Post by nitrosmoker » July 15th, 2018, 4:17 am

Hello everybody
I painted my smoker with hi temperature paint but at first bbq, the firebox and cook box, they presented on the surface, a white gloss. The paint is with silicone, but I afraid that it could harm about meat and that it not very healthy. I painted only the extrernal surface but not the firebox.
What happened? Is it not safer?
Thank you in advance for any reply

Hard, if not impossible, to keep paint on a firebox. The temps just burn off the paint.

Some will oil the outer skin after each use instead of paint. It burns into a dark brown after a while and protects it pretty well.

If you painted external only, no harm to the meat.

In fact I painted only the external surface on cook chamber and not the firebox. Maybe at the second cooking, the white gloss will vanish. I hope so
Thanks

Did you season the inside of the cook chamber with cooking oil after you built it ?

Unfortunately no. I hope that it's not a problem. I used it only one time at the moment. Do you think that his biggest problem?

Perhaps before your next cook (just before you light it), use a rag and smear cooking oil all over the inside of your cook chamber. Then cook something a bit fatty and you should end up with a black patina on the metal. This is good and will stop any rust etc.


Learning generally boils down to "Repetition or the avoidance of pain", some people learn by doing, some by watching and some just have to pee on the electric fence.

Whether you think that you can, or that you can't, you are usually right. Henry Ford

Ok thank you. First of all I'll remove all rust with sanding and before my next cook, I'll smear with cooking oil
