    seriously, can the rustoleum high heat handle being exposed to a direct flame?

    The paint is just going to burn. Somewhere around its advertised limit which is around 1200 degrees. Better to just coat the pieces with a light coating of vegetable oil or spray some PAM on them which is the same thing.

    The paint won't last once you burn, but will keep rust away until then. Put a bag of "DAMP GONE" by Rutland in the unit till you start using the stove.
    Rustoleum paint is too oily, use Stovebright hi temp instead.

    If you use Stove Bright use that acetone based, brain damaging stuff outdoors!

    I have re-painted pellet units with Stove Bright. It holds up just fine. The parts usually turn white/grey from all the ash but I have not seen the paint peel off.

    you could use stove paint to attenuate the rust for the off season , if surface rust try this as well; open a box of baking soda and set it in the burn pot , during the off season , this will act as a dessicant and absorb moisture that may become trapped in the unit , a dry unit is less likely to rust during non use than one which has trapped humidity in it. hope this helps
