Got my drum today. Getting the last of the varnish out was a little problematic but otherwise it went ok. (Glad we saw the dregs before he cut the top off with the plasma torch. That could have been exciting..)
Got my draft tubes in and its burning some damp KF and random 'hardwood firewood'. Fyi automotive varnish drums are unlined - it rusted as soon as I dumped out the "don't explode" water..
Tomorrow it gets seasoned and gets grates and such mounted :} gonna ask my friendly butcher for a few lbs of pork fat to supplement the veg oil.
