As is the case with most small cheap offset stick burners like this.

How thick is the steel used to make the fire box on this? More than likely this unit will burn through or rust out in 2-3 years.

Honestly I will probably get this, waiting on a few craiglist postings to respond before I jump on this.

This looks solid enough, which is all you need to start with. For one its $65 so if this even lasts me 2 years, more then got my moneys worth. But with one to two easy steps I can make this last me 5 years plus if I wanted to. First off before you completely assembly it go to homedepot or autozone buy rustoleum grill paint $4 per can. If you dont want to spray the whole grill just spray the inside of the barrels with complete coverage. That right there will make the grill last over 2-3 years without a problem. After you spray it you can always line the bottom with aluminum foil which you really dont have to touch for a long time, and then use those $1-$2 grill pans from the dollar store to hold your charcoal. It makes lighting charcoal easier, gives you even heat distribution, and takes away direct contact of the coals on the barrel. There are no burners to worry about but clean your grill plates and oil them once in awhile so the grates dont rust. Finally if you really want this grill to last forever at the end of the grilling season just reapply the rustoleum grill paint to refresh it or wait till the start of grilling season. You wont have to ever worry about the barrel rusting out on you.

If you followed those step your grill will last you a long long time. The wood trim is another story, requires additional material but nothing you cant do yourself and for under $10 to keep it looking good.

Hope this helps a few of you.

Maybe its just me, but I make a habit of not spraying any chemicals (paints) INSIDE the cooking chamber. High temp paint or not, I don't really feel like ingesting any of these chemicals, and I doubt any of my guests would like to either. Spraying the inside with paint is not necessary if you season it properly. If seasoned properly inside, and used regularly, it should not rust from within.

I'm sure with regular maintenance, this grill will can last a good while. Most people don't do regular maintenance on items like this though. They start out using the foil pans like you suggest, but then forget once or twice and then decide its not necessary from then on.... then they leave the ashes in it for months (years?) at a time... Leave it uncovered, or covered improperly, etc...

According to the ebay page, this grill only weighs 38 lbs. Compare that to other grills of similar size. The page doesn't give any material sizes, but this grill appears to built EXTREMELY light.

It is paint, specifically made for grills. Same stuff the factory should be spraying, but they are becoming very cheap and scantily on. You are just adding more to verify a proper coverage. All your doing is refreshing something already in the grill in the first place.

Thanks for supporting my other points. So its not made of pure iron, if you properly maintain it will last. Again your paying $65, if you chose to be lazy after that point its your own fault.

The following is stated right in the owners manual of my offset smoker/grill...this appears on the first page after the table of contents, in the section titled Preparing And Using Your Smoker.

"Rust can appear on the inside of your smoker. Maintaining a light coat of vegetable oil on interior surfaces will aid in the
protection of your unit. Exterior surfaces of smoker may need occasional touch up. We recommend the use of a
commercially available black high temperature spray paint. NEVER PAINT THE INTERIOR OF THE UNIT !"


Again, these hi temp paints are to be used on the EXTERIOR of your grill/smoker, NOT on the interior. It isn't necessary, and could be unsafe.

Here is a link so you can educate yourself. Just states nothing exposed to direct heat such as the grates or burners. If you line and use the grates to keep coal ontop of the barrel its not a issue. Or use the grill containers as mentioned earlier.

Thanks, but there's no need. I'll stick to the grill manufacturers recommendations who is trying to avoid safety or health liability over the company trying to sell their touch up paint.

The owners manual states to NEVER paint the interior, as have all my smoker and grill owners manuals. Even the data sheet on the paint you posted clearly states its for the EXTERIOR of a bbq or stove, not the INTERIOR.

The paint manufacturer even states not to paint anything that can come in contact with an open flame. Its a fricken smoker/grill for gosh sakes. Ever hear of a flare up? When it happens, you can be sure flames will be coming in contact with your paint that should not be in contract with flames. Good luck with that, and thank goodness I won't be eating any Q at your house any time soon.

Reread the first paragraph again!

Rust-Oleum(R) BBQ & Stove is a durable protective enamel that
renews and protects surfaces subject to intermittent heat up to
1200?F (648?C). This rust preventive formula is suitable for the
exterior of barbeque grills
, wood stoves, radiators, fire pits,
fireplace screens, automotive parts, and more. BBQ & Stove
features an advanced spray system that allows you to spray at
any angle, even upside down for those hard to reach areas. A
comfort spray tip with a wider finger pad reduces fatigue caused
by continuous spraying.

You are correct, I was mistaken. Figured this was a powder coat alternative I guess not.
