Ive used the black header paint from NAPA, it seems to hold up ok.  It might actually be a rustoleum product.

What would happen if you used old fashion stove black? I know back in the day you could doctor up a sheet metal pot belly stove that would glow red and it took a long time to burn the lamp black off . Fact I do my insert once a year with it .

I think you just said it all - "Fact I do my insert once a year with it (stove black)"
We should share what we know... someone may learn...

I'm so satisfied with Rust Reformer this spring, summer, fall going to do my wood stove with it.  Painted my work bench top with it 6-7 yrs ago top us still in excellent shape except for the ring where I had a small container of muratic sitting.

Adam if not powder coating.  Maybe this stuff will hold up to alky?  http://www.por15.com/BLACK-VELVET_p_50.html

I had it on a modded cover once and it held up great to heat etc. 

 BLACK VELVET is the only black paint capable of withstanding extreme temperatures up to 1200F. This high temp paint will maintain a rich black color and won't burn off. Can be used on all cars, domestic or foreign, and it meets or exceeds properties and requirements of MIL-C-13370. Can be brushed or sprayed.



GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING POR-20,
BRILLIANT ALUMINUM, FACTORY MANIFOLD GRAY,
AND BLACK VELVET HEAT RESISTANT PAINTS.
General Information:
POR-20, FACTORY MANIFOLD
GRAY, and BLACK VELVET are designed for use on steel
subject to elevated temperatures. The recommended
application is two coats applied directly to properly
prepared steel. These products will dry to the touch and
can be easily handled afterward, but will remain relatively
soft until exposed to heat over 300 degrees Fahrenheit
(150
o
C). They may be susceptible to mechanical damage,
but are unaffected by moderate term weather exposure.
Avoid touching surface to be painted because natural oils in
skin will interfere with proper adhesion.
Surface Preparation
: Steel surfaces must be dry and
cleaned of dirt, oils, rust, and other contaminants. For top
performance and service, the best preparation is abrasive
sand blasting. Stainless steel surfaces should be given
a sweep-blast, or otherwise be mechanically abraded to
create a surface profi le which will give improved bonding.
Surgical-type gloves should be worn for handling to keep
natural body oils off the prepared surface.
Spray Application
: Reduce, if necessary, up to 1 part
POR-15 Solvent to 8 parts Heat Resistant paints. For
Best Results: Two thin covering coats are recommended.
Any sagging or running indicates that application is too
heavy. Allow paint to set for 24 hours on the surface before
temperature is raised. When applying two coats, allow the
fi rst coat to air dry 24 hours at 75
O
F (22
O
C) before
recoating. Avoid going over the same area again after it has
been painted. Alternately, the second coat may be applied
after the fi rst coat has been subjected to a surface
temperature of 400
O
F (205
O
C)and then allowed to cool  down
