Burn Bans

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

We have a strict burn ban on fires in barrels.  I have no $ for sandblasting/powdercoating.  Will a wire brush be sufficient inside and out?

Nope.....  gotta get the inside, to a high enough temp, to burn off the bad stuff....  Sorry......  Dave

Check those laws.

 

All of the townships around here have burn bans now & then, but the only thing allowed is burning in a barrel, which is what you need.

Would the burn ban on fires in barrels include burning out your new cooker?  Just a thought.

Harbor Freight has a propane warming torch that is only$20....you'll be able to get away with using that..doesn't produce smoke and will work great!

The barrel I just had blasted was only $25.00 to be blasted.

We too cannot do any outdoor burning, except in a lidded BBQ/smoker right now.

Using an electric grinder with a wire wheel would do it, but loud, and you'd spend $25+ on wheels and dust masks.

$25 was a great deal farmer! ;)

Would sand blasting be enough to get the nasties out of a barrel that is lined? I haven't bought a barrel yet and I can't burn one out where I am, but looking at other options.

you can sand blast and do a good cure or take a weed burner and burn it.

We have burn bans during early spring when it's dry out. Our law says no open fires. Maybe a piece of expanded metal over the hole will suffice? That flies here. Not sure about where you are.

Between burn bans and living in an apartment building, burning hot like that and a big flame isn't going to fly. We can cook in the parking lot, but that would be a controlled flame and covered. I think a torch or a weed burner may be in order if sand blasting doesn't do it. If its just a rust inhibitor, a burn out is not needed, correct? Just a cleaning and painting, then seasoning?

Sand blasting will work and then just a normal seasoning burn. To have my barrel sand blasted and the exterior powder coated was only $75. To just have it sand blasted was going to be $25.Most powder coaters also do sand blasting, as well as auto body shops. Ask around and you should be able to find someone to blast it for a fair price.
