Default Locking lids

"CLEAN 55 GALLON DRUMS WITH LOCKING TOPS. THEY HAD CARAMEL IN A BAG INSIDE OF THE DRUMS SO THEY SMELL GOOD."

I found this ad selling 55 gallon drums. what is the red stuff inside, is that paint? I figure this will fit the bill nicely but just wanted to get a second opinion before spending the time to drive out to this place. The drums are a good deal at 10 bucks, so if anyone is looking for a drum near milwaukee or the fox valley shoot me a PM and I can forward the contact info (or post it here if that is not against the rules).

What exactly is the locking mechanism? (if there is a standard type) will that help or hurt the project.

I have been reading this thread for a month now and getting ready to build my first smoker!
