Post Post subject: New Lang Paint??  Reply with quote

It was suggested on another forum that I'll need to run my new Lang 60D at low temps for awhile to cure the paint.
What temp profiles are recommended?

John: I don't think curing the paint is necessary and I've never heard of any Lang owners doing that or seeing it done in any of  Ben's video's. I would just follow Ben's seasoning instructions. The place where you're going to have problems with the paint, no matter what you do, is the fire box. It will eventually flake off and you'll have to repaint it. I get about 6 months and then have to sand down to bare metal and repaint.

Good luck with your new cooker.

hi fellas, i have been reading this topic, problem, for some time. Re- gaurding the paint burning off. I have and had this problem too. i did not repaint my cooker.  what i have done.  i got a plastic  spray bottle from the dollar store. got some cooking oil, and spray the area that the paint burned off. i did this while my cooker was hot, my temps. are about say  225-     275 f .in the cook chamber. what happens as the metal gets hot the pours in the metal open up and take in that cooking oil. all said and done, the oil bakes in and a new surface, shinny , all backed in,   and DRY.
i have my cooker since 2011, and ever other time i use the cooker i spray the cooker the oil drys in the metal with the heat. my cooker looke great no rust nothing, i am not computer savvy nor do i have a cell phone cause i would take i picture and send it.    best of luck  vincent

Vincent: Thank you. I assume you're referring to the fire box -- right? Other than the fire box, my rig looks great. Are you down to bare metal when you spray and what kind of cooking oil (veggie/olive oil) are you using? I was going to repaint this weekend but maybe I'll try your method.

hey don  yes the entire cooker is in great condition. only the top, & the front of the fire box. when i say front  (under of cook chamber at fire box)  i used cheep  vegetable oil, got that at dollar store to. remember to wire brush any loose stuff off. heat up your cooker put something on the ground to catch any dripping oil. and spray the entire area several times   the oil bakes in. remember ben saying in one of his videos, treat the  griddle  like cast iron pan . well that is what i did.  after all said and done  the cooker is shinny ,you can touch it not, not get any on you  mine looks great. happy bbq vincent  

        p.s.  also spray  pin wheels, hindges door handles
