When the drum is up to temp, if your basket is smaller than the diameter of the drum, then the outside of the drum will get hot, but not hot enough to burn your hand. It will be to hot to leave your hand against it, but not hot enough to blister if you accidentally touch it. So, to answer your question, it should not burn or melt the mag signs. They probably get hotter in the sun in the summer on your car or truck. My drum sides when cooking at 300* or so will not burn my palm when I touch it. Now the flat lid is a different story. Hope this helps.
