Alright, so I am in the process now of getting the "liner/paint" out of a drum that help apple juice in its previous life. I made a fire in the drum on Monday night; however, it was not large enough to do the trick. I am aware that it has to be a large, hot fire, but I am smack dab in the middle of a suburb community in Orange County and seeing as the Fire Department is only a mile away, I have a feeling that I will have them there in about ten minutes (great in case of emergency, but for this application...not so much). I know I can sand it down, but oh man that would take forever. So really my question is what do you guys think would be the next best thing to clean the drum up with? I am builing three UDSs in the long run but only one at a time. One of them is a X-mas gift for my Gf's dad in return of buying my El Cheapo Harbor Freight smoker. Any help, input, or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
