Default Do I need to paint the lintel?

My oven design has an angle iron lintel over the door. It supports the back of the masonry chimney. Normally a lintel should be painted but I'm wondering if it's a good idea with the heat. Anybody got any advice? Will it rust? Will the paint just burn off?

Default Re: Do I need to paint the lintel?

I used angle iron in the same way and left it unpainted. It's been in place for 5 years now with pretty much weekly baking and does not appear worn at all (i.e. no rust, no pitting, no warp, etc.) but it does get blackened & sooty during some firings. I'm positive if you painted it the paint would burn off the first time you used the oven...so relax, don't worry, have a home brew...
