  1. Just got off the phone with a guy selling up to 7 barrels with tops for $10 a piece. Here's the catch (ain't there always one)...

    they contained "aluminum fiber roof coating". Can that stuff be burned out?

    Thanks in advance

    Was the coating in a bag or just poured in the drum?

    Might want to keep looking.

    I've burned some strange things out of a drum but don't see that going very well....[​IMG]

    Hmmm most anything can be I suppose... but that'll be one NASSSTY cloud, and I bet alot of tough ash/residue to remove after.

    My thoughts exactly, you MAY be able to clean it out, but will kill the neighbors in the process!

    This is where Guvna Got his barrel, alittle pricey but clean and nice.

    Guvna and I are in Alington/alexandria areas where are you at?
     
  10. I'm down in Woodbridge by Potomac Mills Mall. G and I were talking the past few days. I was thinking their barrels were galvy but if they are not, I will have to roll up there and pick up a couple.

    Why take any chances?

    Buy a new clean one with no liner and a removable lid.

    My .02 after weed burning out a food grade barrel.
