How tall is your barrel BM? Inside preferably. I am figuring I need to find 39 to 40 inch minimum. Thanks!

Has anyone ever burnt and/or ground out the lining of a barrel? Research is turning up that it is just an epoxy based rust inhibitor. The ones my neighbor had were chipping up by the lip at the lid and were apparently good bare metal underneath. Not really something I want to do for fun, but if worse comes to worse I could go up there and measure until I found what I needed. These barrels have only had cooking oil in them.

I would have never thought there was this much variation in barrel dimensions for a 55 gal. barrel. A few sites had the barrel measurements and there were several different sizes all supposedly 55 gallon.
