I have a new 55 gallon drum. Do you still have to do a burn out or can you just season it. What about the painted outside of the drum, does that have to be repainted with high heat paint.

If it is bare steel inside then no burn out is needed just season it.
I painted mine with 1200 degree paint but I did a burn out.
I would think standard paint should hold up.
i just decided to paint mine with 500 degree paint. the outside really doesnt get that hot. when i did my seasoning a few days ago the lid was the hottest feeling part of the whole thing.
YES I would watch what chemicals were in it. Might not be safe even after the burn????
Most say that the burn out will make any barrel safe.
My barrel was unlined and used to store aluminium shaving in, which I am sure had some chemical on them.
If you choose to use the chem barrel. . I would sandblast if thats an option for ya... and give a good burn.. or vise versus... just incase. . Its you and your fam/friends body eating whats cooked.. safer is better.. IMHO..
