Default Getting ready to build my first UDS

Just a couple questions. I just picked up a 34" tall drum, food grade, and a neighbor is taking it to work to have it sandblasted. My questions are:

1. Since it's being sandblasted, I'm assuming I don't need to do a burn, other than maybe taking an angle grinder to any paint remnants (probably none), right?

2. For the heat diffuser, does anyone use a pan filled with water, to allow for steam? Or just use something dry, just to defect too much direct heat?

3. I'm probably going to pick up three 8" pneumatic casters...are these too tall (could cause it to tip over). I was planning on making a dolly out of wood with sheet metal on top, like one a few pages/posts above.
