It appears that there was still some adhesive remaining inside the rim of the lid after I removed the gasket. When seasoned the drum, it heated up the adhesive and it ran a little bit inside the drum and sealed it to the top of the drum. After I got the lid off, there is still dried adhesive inside the rim and a long that edge of the top of the drum.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get this adhesive out of the rim? I'm assuming it should be removed. I was thinking, I could just heat it up with a propane blowtorch and wipe it off.
Is there anything else I could put in the lid rim to keep from happening. (I.e.high temp silicon, Aluminum foild,etc)
Any other thoughts would be greatly appreciated. I'm hoping I didn't ruin it and have to start all over.
Thanks for your help.
