I didn't find a need for high temp paint and went with a basic black from the hardware store. In fact they run so stedy that I have a vinal sticker on the side and it's still in place.
I would burn it out just because it's god fun to play with fire. Once the burn is dome and has been cleaned then grad a stick of lard and season the brum.
