Yikes. No thanks. I just built one with a barrel that had the red liner in it. After reading the Mother of All UDS Threads, I decided to burn it and wire wheel it out - not going to risk the fumes as my pregnant wife and 4 year old son love the que I make. I used left over wood from the shop teacher here at school, and had a HOT long fire going, and still had to do about 8 hours of wire wheel work. Next time, I'll spend the extra 30 bucks to get a no-liner clean reconditioned drum from a company in the south 'burbs. My opinion - burn it out, and don't buy UDS from a guy who is willing to give his customers a drum with a liner in it.
