I may have to try that then. I can find used once oil barrels for $10 locally but would have to drive 100 miles to get a food quality one that probably has a liner in it for 30 dollars.
I definitely would not use one that was used for pesticides or weed spray but oil would burn off. I had heard that oil remains in the steel for some time but if it is used elsewhere it may be okay to use.
Thanks for the reply.
