You could find out more on the Jambo Pits website, but it's been DOA for a while now. Too bad.

EDIT: I had been given and was using a bad link. Sorry!

That's what was on there site. It was only a few weeks ago i read that. The fire boxes might be powder coated, the pictures on the site were not very detailed so its hard for me to say.

Jambo powder coats their pits with this stuff http://sherwinwilliams.ca/us/eng/products/powdura_high_heat_powder_coating/
Jamie says 150 deg on his site and the product mfg says 1000 deg, I don't know??? Either way he builds a damn nice pit. Any bod got a spare $12,000.00 laying aroud ty would like to donate to The Dawg I be owne'n me a new J5. Laughing

Well I'm not set up for power coating and I want something other than flat black bbq paint.and most of the engine paints i've seen are flat or a weird color.I was hoping there was a glossy paint I could use on a pit.

How hot do you run your pit? As long as you are under 400 deg almost ant good paint will hold up on the cooking side. Now the firebox and the end flange to that which it is welded I would go with High temp Blk or silver.

You have to look farther than the obvious local places for paints in high heat. There are a lot of industrial coatings in different colors, but now you step into the more expensive line of paint. And 140.00 and up a gall is not unheard of. Normally paint companies such as Sherwin Williams and PPG do not list these on there web sights you need to talk to a store for information.

Hey KAM. I did consult SW and they do carry a line of paint that I posted around here somewhere. But as you said, expensive and maybe not worth doing. Currently I am looking into a paint that is other than the BBQ Black without going so upscale as to towing something in the Rose Bowl parade. There has got to be a middle ground. Seems the art of BBQ has not reached the paint MFG folk yet.

Most paint companies have a cheaper line of automotive paint that they sell also. Dupont paint carries another line called Nason....
http://www.thesmokering.com/forum/posting.php?mode=reply&t=35675
Basic colors should be available in a single stage paint (enamel). I haven't looked into it but i would guess that that line of finishes should also carry a high heat paint. What your looking for is a paint used for high heat applications.
Here is another line of high heat paint that i have used on exhaust systems for hot rods. http://www.hightempenginepaint.com/ Seems to be holding up so far, haven't had any complaints yet.
1200 -1500 degrees for the cook chamber is plenty. For the firebox on your cookers your guess is as good as mine. Tuff to fine any paint that will withstand the constant high heat that its exposed too on a FB. Google "High Heat Paint" and you will find an bunch of products for high heat applications in gloss, satin & flat finishes.
Best place to start is your local automotive refinish supplier. They should be able to help you find a high heat paint but be prepared to spend the money cause paint isn't cheap. Wink

Try these guys http://www.stovepaint.com/. I have talked to them before and they are pretty helpful. PPG sells a caliper paint in a few colors that is high temp.

A good automotive paint for $150/gal is not too bad. But that's a heck of a lot more than I use on pits.

Also, has anyone tried that appliance porcelain repair enamel that HD sells? I wonder how it would hole up?
