I did this with my SJ UDS barrel and 2 years later it barely has any spots that are rusting... If you do it hot enough it won't be sticky at all, just like a CI skillet. If it doesn't work you can always reheat it with the torch to burn it off and then paint it...
I think I have decided that I am going to go with some 1200 degree hi-temp paint. I will take it somewhere to have in sandblasted and then bring it to my garage and paint it. Then I will give it a good oiling and fire it up, I will keep oiling the firebox each time I cook.
If that doesn't seem to work, then I may give the old CI skillet treatment a try.
