Also, am I OK to paint over the existing paint with high temp? Just directly onto the existing paint?
I know this has been mentioned before, but I want to get it right.
Thanks in advance and apologies for the noob Q's.
Drill your intake holes at bottom and burn that bad boy with some old pallets.
Pressure wash, wire wheel left over paint. Then re-paint with high temp paint.
I'd recommend high temp primer b4 paint.
Assemble, then Cook!!
