I suppose you could cover the bottom with charcoal, and fill the barrel with
wooden pallets and burn it off. The bottom should get hot enough to destroy a galvanized coating.
When I bought mine, I bought a new, food grade, steel barrel that was unlined. I still burned it out, because I thought it may have a rust preservative sprayed on the inside... I did it for my family and myself...
