I picked up my 55 gallon drum yesterday and I'm hoping to get this thing up and smoking asap! I don't have a lot of building experience so, I'm hoping I can get some good insight from you all, and I'll be documenting my build (lots of pics) so hopefully this can end up being a resource for future first time uds builders as well.
I picked up what I was told was a food grade drum yesterday and initially I thought it may have had a "tan liner" inside but I tried scraping it today and it seems like maybe it's just paint? IDK, would a liner be that easy to remove? If it is just paint what would be the best way to scrub the rest off? Doing a burn isn't possible (still living with the folks ;) )
The inside of the barrel top that I scraped.
The whole shabang!
