The faucet was an after thought. Figured if i ever had to wash drum out or put out coals real quick with water i could use it to drain barrel easy.
The inside is not painted, it was an unlined drum, so i burned it out sprayed it down with cooking spray, burned it again and sprayed it again. I will run a basket or 2 thru when finished just to make sure its clean and seasoned. I tend to over-do things.
The paint is 2000 deg VHT primer, then 650 deg burnt copper engine metallic, then 650 deg clear.
