Here is our Royal Chef as we purchased it. As you can see, there is a lot of surface rust and dirt.
The first thing I did was break the whole grill down so I could start the painting process.
Unfortunately, there are not many color choices when it comes to high temperature BBQ paint. I was able to find a gun steel blue high temperature spray paint online. I also wanted to buy high temperature primer as well.
Here is the main body of the grill in primer.
After the primer had dried, I painted it. I do like the color. It may be hard to tell, but there is a metal flake in the paint.
After a lot of sanding and cleaning, I managed to get the whole grill repainted. I reassembled it and here it is!
I painted the inside of the grill with black grill paint. I also refinished the rotisserie and got it working again!
I am soo glad the paint isn’t in a flat finish, more like something between eggshell and semigloss.
I am very happy with the coverage of this paint. This lower tray had a lot of surface rust. The paint and primer makes it look like new.
I think I will take this over to my upholstery guy Bill from B&T Upholstery to make a cover for it. I will have him sew the two letters “R C” Royal Chef on the cover. Now that this is done, onto the next thing!
