Can anyone tell me if Auto Air by Createx or Createx Wicked Airbrush paints will hold up on a smoker? Im going to use a Hi TEMP black or white base coat. Have not decided which color to go with yet. And Im going to use a HI TEMP high gloss to coat over the air brushed art. Any thoughts would really help.

I bought a new barrel and after a year of cooking it still looks new.  Whatever paint they use works great.

I have a small "around the house" compressor and it doesn't have the psi output for a gun.  I will give Space Age a call and see what they have.  A guy this weekend suggested Powder Coating it, said the cost for a barrel is about the same as three or four cans of high heat paint.

Might have to look into that as well.

Hey Chuck Marv here i looked at the Forrest web site and they have powder coating colors, you could
probably order it form them and take it to a paint co to have them do the work.

I don't know about a maroon paint, but I know you can get gold. There is a "universal gold" available in an engine paint (I think it's dupli-color) and plenty of companies offer an Oldsmobile gold. The Olds rocket motor was gold til the late sixties. If you're in Mesa you can try Space Age. They're an auto body supply company and they have every off the wall paint and usually in stock. The only issue there is it may not be available in a rattle can. Do you have a gun and a compressor?

I've bought hi-temp paint at Auto Zone. They have it in several colors. http://www.autozone.com/autozone/accessories/Fluids-and-Chemicals/High-Heat-Paint/_/N-261a?filterByKeyWord=high+temperature+paint&fromString=search

But don't do what I did. I mistakenly bought white for the firebox. Dave Williams, my BBQ partner, asked "Well, what color was the cap?" It was so long since I bought spray paint paint I forgot to look. D'oh! :-[ Needless to say, we had the most distinctive paint job out there! :laugh:

Look up Forrest Paint Co. www.forrestpaint.com
They have two colors that may work for you in Hi Heat - Don't know the price
6302 - Gold
6319 - Mojave Red

The Forrest Paint website no longer lists out their distributors.

I called Golden Flame because - their location is on my way home, they are now a division of Arizona Fireplace. 

Gold is a special order, but they have about half a dozen Mojave cans in stock.  $16 per can.

Take a look at www.stovepaint.com where you will find the Thurmalox aerasol good at continuous temperatures of 1200 degrees F. Many colors available. If you want a high gloss finish to use their clear product as the final coat. This paint can be bought on line at www.net4sale.com. A little pricey but from what I have read it is an outstanding product. I am starting a UDS project and believe I will use it.

Crackle is sometimes good for a distinctive cooker. You should see the mess I created when I inadvertently used white hi-temp paint for my firebox and a couple o' sputtering spray cans of JC Whitney's neon green paint for our cooker. You could say that the results are "legendary."  ::)

One thing I learned the hard way is be careful when using different manufacturers paint on the same drum
I sprayed midnight blue from net4sale.com with rust-o-leum engine enamel gloss white and it crackled when one was applied on top of another
Had to prime first and it worked fine

I just went with flat black Engine paint...maybe I ned to try some bling bling colors myself.  I would guess that regular  paint would work as long as you keep the temps down.  I'm sticking with the high heat stuff as I have been know to cook a butt at 300+

I think I'm going to do an experiment and paint the bottom with hi temp primer and reg spray paint and some with just sprat paint to see what happens. Afterwards just sand and do what works best. All I got is time.

I have found that the high temp VHT and Duplic-color bonds and last better than regular rattle can paint.
I often use the high temp paints where I don't  necessarly need the heat resistance but want durability and longevity.
