Saves a burn and all that black ash and the liner comes out pretty easily!
Then you don't have to repaint the outside either!
Help me understand this as I hope to have access soon to a food grade drum with the bladder inside. My question is if the inside is clean why do you go to the wire wheel ? What does the wire wheel do in this situation. After the wire wheel and cleaning would you then coat side with pam or lard ?
