The weather has been unusually warm for these winter months. The bright skies and warm sunshine has motivated me to do a periodical maintenance to one of my favorite smokers. This beauty is made of heavy gauge steel. It is painted with heat resistant paint. Every couple of years the paint will fade and a little surface rust will appear. This does not affect the performance of this old faithful cooker. If left unattended the rust could take over but hopefully this will never happen. All it takes is motivation and a little elbow grease to return this barbeque to showroom quality.
A power drill, wire brush bit, emery cloth and heat resistant paint will transform this pit to its former glory. The power drill with its wire brush will make quick work of removing old paint and surface rust. Emery cloth will be used to finish the surface. A thorough cleaning of the surface with a damp cloth and we are ready to paint. Point & shoot with your spray can, it could not be easier.
