UDS Help ?
I just got a drum that contained Apple Juice. I has a tan Liner(see pic) any easy ways you all have found to remove this liner?

Well I'm having a tough time as well. Used a can of epoxy stripper which helped a little bit and I currently have the barrel loaded with scrap wood waiting to do a burn out. I think to get the liner fully removed you need to burn it out and then grind or sand the crap out of it. If you can find a sandblaster go that route; some guy local quoted me $200 lmao. good luck

Full it with some decent sized splits to get a good burn out fire but not so full that it smolders. Also build a fire around it with scrap wood, burn baby burn. Most if not all of the liner should burn out. Repaint the outside and proceed to Cookin great Q.

I hit mine with a rosebud and burned it all off and followed up with a wire wheel. It wasn't difficult, but it was a pain. The next 4 I built I had sand blasted which was totally worth it.

Sand blasting is the easiest way.

Make some calls, I found a powder coat place that charges me $20 for a blast & burn. I also make him a couple racks of ribs. Now he wants one.

I wonder how many people have just left it in there?

BIG HOT FIRE and a little wire brush clean up.

I too would like to know how many people have just left it.im thinking that with the lower cooking temps it may not be a big deal

If you do a search, you will find arguments both ways. Personally, I wasn't gonna worry too much about what was left after a few hours of this:
A big fire got the job done for my tan lilner. I was going to wire wheel the rest but really there was no paint left to wheel. Make sure that fire is blowing and you are good to go.

Break apart 2 pallets & burn 'em. I know a few folks with lined UDSs and that worked for them.
That shop vac idea is great, too.

I just did a couple of them that had the tan liner. Had been used once for hydraulic fluid. Burnt from the outside with my Harbor Freight weed burner and then pressure washed the powder off the inside and ground out the remaining.
