I do have a question... I noticed that my lid does not sit flush with the top of my drum. I flared out the lip and it helped some, but not a nice flush fit. I do not know if the barrel is misshaped or if that is just normal. Any ideas or guidance is appreciated.
Did you burn out the drum yet? I know when I burnt out my drum yesterday, the lid warped, and now I will need a new one. Side note; since your drum contained food product, beware the dreaded liner, as most food drums have a real PITA red or tan liner that can drive you nuts.
