    I found this on Craigs List for $15.  Seems like this guy always has a stock.  He says they are food grade.  The inside is painted but, is it a liner? In any case, it's gonna be a @#$% to get it clean!

    Yup that's a liner. Being in San Diego you might get the fire dept. out if you try burning it.

    If I have it sandblasted, do I still need to burn it?
