What are some different techniques to burning my ss drum? I was wondering if a weed torch would be sufficient enough? Thanks

Is it painted on the outside and bare metal on the inside? The drums seems to have all sorts of coatings and linings and some are easier to remove than others. I used a food grade drum and built a fire in it using pallets (actually two fires).

This is bare metal inside and out. It had natural tea tree oil in it

Do you know what the smoke point of the oil is? If it is a low enough smoke point you might be able to get it off just by running the UDS with all the intakes open (350-400 degrees).

Any idea what kind of temp I'm looking for?

Check out this chart:


If you can get the temp over 500 you should burn off any residual oil.
