My stand is similar to his, though I lowered my BK. To cure my 2000 degree header paint, I ran the burners with a 1/4 inch by 4 ft piece of steel I had laying around. I put the steel over the burners and let it run for a while. Moved the steel around to try and create an oven type of heat for the top of my stand.
I also cured it in stages. No primer.
It worked good enough I guess. 6 brews in and paint job is still at 100%, not a spec missing. Using natural gas though.
