    I wouldn't paint a grill myself, engine paint flakes off like any other paint, with the scraping and cleaning of a grill the paint would most likely end up in your food. As for heat resistance, some engine enamels can withstand tempuratures much higher that what most bbqs put out, my barbecue gets up to 600 F, hot enough to cook almost anything, including powdercoat.

    paint would defenetly come off. take it to be electroplated if you have a strong atachment to it, but getting, or making a new one would be better.
    keep in mind it not only gets hot but also scraped and oil'ed, this would kill any paint job.

    Paint (of any type) and galvanized metals should not be used on food preparation surfaces.

    I've made a few replacement grills using 5/16" 304 S/S rod to frame the perimeter and S/S expanded wire (the rolled flat style) for the cooking surface. The result is maintenance-free and the small holes in the expanded wire keep food from falling through the grill. Works great when grilling salmon.

    Dangit, I'm gettin' hungry...
