I'm thinking of getting the 96 gallon drum because its 16 gauge (vs 18 on the 85).

Spray the inside with some heavy duty Easy Off and let it soak overnight then wash it out real good and you'll be fine..

On the last Uds I built I did this then burned it with a weed burner from HF.They are cheap and work great in areas where a full blown fire might get the fire dept to your house. I then it it with a grinder and was ready to go.Very easy .
