I'm new to AZ BBQ. I am wanting input on paint for UDS. I was going to use engine block paint, but there are limited colors. I wonder if regular sprat paint will be fine?

My .02,......... my UDS's have original factory paint (whatever 55gal paint is) which im sure is not hi-temp. They hold up just fine and do not suffer from the heat. Remember, you are not grillin, you are smoking under 300 degrees.

Thanks guys, but I think my real question is... will regular spray paint hold up to the heat at the bottom of the barrel where the heat is? I'm painting it maroon and gold (sorry AZWildcat)  >:D. Can't find those colors in engine or caliper paint. Once my UDS is done though, I'll post some pics if I can figure out how.

Don't you mean "rust and mustard"? No prob here, you've redeemed yourself by building a UDS anyway 8). Either way, the paint at the bottom would prob survive. Have you checked Napa? But those are kind of odd colors, not much popularity in Sun Devil stuff now, jus saying Sparky. (UA vs ASU basketball Sun night, make sure you tune in). Make sure you get that pic up too.

Spray a few coats of heat flat black as a base coat.
Spray your mustard and rust over it.

My first UDS was sandblasted in and out and sprayed with a flat black BBQ paint and woked great although not flashy. The second was only sandblasted on the inside but since the guy did it for free, I didn't complain and paintede the outside with the same BBQ paint. After only a couple of uses though both the original paint and the hi temp on the outside have peeled on the lower 12" or so. I have usede it for roasting though and had the temp as high as 375 so that may have done it.
If you're going to bling out and pimp your drum, I'd use hi temp paint no matter what as flaking off paint looks pretty hillbilly

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.

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+

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

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."  ::)

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.
