I am in the process of making 2 uds. I have drilled and welded in my vents in the bottom. Drilled the holes for the grates for the bolts. I sanded blasted the paint off on the inside but i noticed there is a little bit of residue left after the blasting. My question is should i start a fire in the drum to finish it or should i use a weed burner and get the drum hot and finish with sanding it with a sanding disk?

Five pallets between the two of them should do it. If you can find some scrap plywood, cut it into strips that extend out of the drum by about a foot and lean them against the sides to get the heat all the way to the top. Do your burn at night so you can see where the steel gets red.
