I just built a brewing stand. This is welded steel. Any suggestions on what kind of paint I can use for the burner trays? Obviously it has to be something that can withstand a lot of heat.

They sell hi-temp paint for bbq's at walmart and other stores. That should work.

This is good to 1200 degrees, that's the melting point of aluminum.

You'll want header paint from an automotive store. BBQ paint isn't up to the task. I suggest you scrape or burn off the paint around the burners you have already painted on or else the high heat paint will serve no purpose other than to be burned with the rest the first time it's fired.

BTW: Nice stand.

The plan right now is to and a burner grill to the trays. Here is an updated photo of the project. Thanks for the tips about paint. I will probably strip the pair off the trays and get a high temp alternative before we fire it up.

Your kettle/keggle is going to most likely cause issue with your burner shield design. There needs to be an air gap between the shield an kettle bottom for oxygen.

How much of a gap? Is 2 inches enough?
