If it truly is good for that temp, it should even be OK in the fire box.

The other thing I don't like about it is the propensity to tip forward when lifted by the bail. I want to counterweight it with something on the bottom towards the rear to counteract that. I wish they would have put the bail lugs at the balance point rather than the center of the fire box.
No kidding. I hate how it wobbles and the flap always drops when I'm carrying it. I empty out all the ash before moving it. It's still a great grill though. But I'm not sure that painting the inside of it is such a good idea. Maybe it won't matter as much because its not a closed cooker?

The grate can be flipped- legs up for seat marks Nd getting close to the fire. Legs up for spatula foods like burgers and cooking a little further from the coals.
