I got myself two food grade barrels with a tan liner on the inside and have already burned out the first one. The weed burner took care of that in no time! I've got my charcoal basket built and will hopefully be cleaning out the barrel with a wire brush on my drill this evening. A quick coat of paint on the outside and final assembly and I hope to have this thing seasoned and smoking by the weekend.
The first one will be going to my dad for Christmas, but I might have to break it in for him before I get it to him... I'll build mine right after that and I'll post pictures as soon as I get them complete. After that I'll be doing some hunting for recipes to use!
When you used the weed burner for the liner did you burn the liner on the inside or heat it up from the outside?
