And I'm talking the reddish-white, glowing metal kinda burn........

The label says food grade and keeps the wife happy?

Honestly I'd feel safer with a bare steel drum that had some sort of oil or antifreeze in it than something that used to have some plastic or epoxy liner sealed to the surface.

Steel is steel for the most part. Tupperware is food safe, but not with a fire in it. Context is key.

WOO! I can't claim to have read every word but I did read the first 5k posts and have put my eyeballs on every page since. Learned a lot, Starting the parts hunt tomorrow.
The pig; A wonderful, magical animal! Bacon, ham, ribs, pulled, and even ears for the dogs.
