Grill Paint
 
I used a high temp grill paint to redo my smoker.

It looks terrible. It's also starting to show some signs of rust.

Do I need to get it off and start over or can I just add layers to is to even it out?

The outside? They make high temp. paint, you need to get that else the temp. will strip off.

Should remove any and all oxidation before attempting to paint.:D

I am using a high temp. It's just coming out not so great.

I tried to bust it all off. I got most of it using CLR and scrubbing but could not get it all off.

I would sand it down and make sure all failing surfaces are removed and cleaned then reapply the high temp.

Just clear it off than try to repaint it. Because if you re paint than it will get more rusty than it is actually before. So it is only possible when you remove older paint and choose right paint with equivalent properties of grill paints.

It back on my project list.

Is it normal for high temp paint to smoke when you use it?

To be honest I have never used it on a grill, I typically will paint fireplace surrounds with it but to go with my gut I would say no depending upon where it was used.

I read up on it, it says to expect light smoking, but this thing smokes like crazy.

Maybe I over applied?

Grill Paint? I was ready to ask what kind of sauce to use on paint.:D
