The hot ticket is powder coating. Much more durable than any paint. Sand blasting is part of the process so any surface rust isn't a problem. Thats my plan for my garage built stand and grain mill, just haven't gone around to it. Its a little bit pricey, but most shops will offer big discounts if you can wait for bigger "runs" of the same color.

Sandblasting & powder coating would be my choice, and so many colors to choose from.

use high temp spray paint, oreilly auto carries a lot of colors in both 500 F and 700F
also use rustloeum on any welds prior to painting to catalyze any rust

High temp stove paint is what I used. Good up to 1,200 degrees. Get the glossy. The flat has a lot of residue for some reason.

High temp paint is not flame resistant so it will burn off where the burner is, I'm not sure about powder coating.
