Definitely not something you can do yourself. It is a process of negatively charging the metal and spraying it with positvely charged powder. Then it has to be baked.

There is a place called Idaho Powder Coating here in I.F.

Wow, powder coating prices can really vary... ours would probably charge us around $50 for one, but I don't know if it could take the heat - that's what nice about chrome or stainless steel stacks.

I know they have a high-temp formula for powder coat... you should ask IPC about that.

Try to find a place that applies ceramic coating; the silver is good to 1200*F and polishes to a mirror finish, and the black formula's temp range goes to 2200*F.

Prime it, 2 coats of gloss black and 1-2 coats of clear. Should work fine unless the stack is getting like 1000* or something... which I wouldn't think it'd get that hot.

That BBQ paint sucks balls! I've NEVER had luck with it... even on stuff that doesn't get that hot.
