Right, but my point is if he would spend the minimal time actually looking he would probably find one quickly. They have some that were used to hold olive oil the link says. those might not be lines. Call them, Ask them.

I found a bunch of links that he could give a call too. I'd be glad to help him out on the research. In fact what I think we should do is start compiling a phone directory and site listing in a thread here that lists the known places to look for drums about the country. That would be helpful I'd bet.

I dunno I was just poking at him though because his post was a bit of the "I don't really want to read or do much of the legwork myself but..."

A nice alternative is a used oil drum.........they are unlined, and are relatively easy to cleanup. A raging inferno burnout is not needed.....just a good power-wash and do a couple test burns with your charcoal and wood.....maybe some light sanding if you are paranoid. Plus, even if there is a little oil left in the nooks and crannies, it is not all that harmful. Look at a couple MSDS reports on motor oil. It's not toxic in small quantities.
