I have white plastic 2 and 3 gallon buckets I got from the bakery and deli departments of the market. Things like frosting and potato salad come in them and they give you the lids too. I also have a stainless steel room service champagne bucket with a bail... I believe it's a Holiday Inn brand , but I bought it at a garage sale.

If you want a metal bucket for their heat transfer properties, it's easy to tell if something is aluminum, so don't buy that. Coated steel will work, but stainless is better. Take a refrigerator magnet to the store with you as stainless is non-magnetic. If you have a farm store, try them... a lot of milk buckets and feed buckets are stainless.

I did see an ad in last months Bullsheet for this brining bucket. I like the locking insert which keeps your things submerged. It comes with a lid too. Very clever design.
