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
You make that sound like a bad thing...... 8)

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.

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

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.

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.

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?
