I have also scavenged a couple of stainless steel beer kegs which I plan to turn into smokers as well. The outside of them is galvanised though and I vaguely remember someone saying galvanised = bad? Is that right?
Any other tips, send em my way. Cheers for the help!
Pass it by. Metolachlor is dangerous,nasty stuff. (Pesticide family???)
You might burn it all out, but what if you don't get it all???
