Whatever you're comfortable with, really. I got a brand new unlined drum and still drilled my intake holes and burnt it out with about two full armloads of oak. The wife and myself feel pretty confident about cooking in the drum now. She wants me to paint it pretty soon, but that's another matter entirely. :-)
