I think you'd be fine with these drums, although there may be a clear sealer sprayed on the inside of them. After washing and burning, I'd take some very coarse sandpaper or a grinder to a small section on the inside. Put some water in and loosely put the cover on the drum for a few days.

Open it up and look for rust. If it's only on the sanded/ground area, you['ve got more work ahead of you.

Good luck,
