Actually used oil drums are not that bad. If you do a good burn, and then powerwash it out, they work great.
Most people talk about food grade drums like they are a good thing. The liner in a food grade drum is way harder to get our AND more toxic than the mineral oil residue in a drum. No carcinogens in motor oil..........its organic. Look up an MSDS sheet for motor oil. Worst thing you can get a minute trace of oil left in a drum is a laxative effect.
