2. Is a closed top 55 gal drum used for Iso-alcohol which appears to be very clean but unsure if this is lined or not. The top will need to be cut off and then customized for Weber style cover.

Any opinions on the above?


I would get the #2 drum and flip the drum and have the 2" bung hole on the bottom for a drain to wash it out. Cut out what was the bottom of the drum to place the weber lid on.
