    How is Powder coating with heat. Would it withstand the temps experienced on a fire box?

    Sure would. After all it withstands to temps on the Q lid. Arguably not that well though but IMO it's more an indication of Weber not using quality materials to coat it.

    What is the stuff on the outside of Silver B's and 1000's. It isn't normal paint?

    You mean the lid? That is porcelain. Basically that is glass fused to the metal. The steel is heated until cherry red hot. Glass powder is poured/sprinkled over it and it immediately melts and fuses to the steel

    No, I meant to specify the cook box and end caps.

    Well prior to them going to China I would bet they used a powder coat finish. EPA is really cracking down on solvent based painting and powder is much easier to control because no VOC's no flammability issues, overspray is MUCH easier to control, heck they can even recycle the overspray. Since going to China where they don't care what they do to the environment my guess is they use the easiest cheapest methods available
