I finally found my barrel. Found a place in Montebello that had brand new drums. I installed everything last week and burned but forgot to season it. How important is it to season the inside, if it won't really see any weather? (It's goes in a shed when not in use.)
The outside paint never faded either, do I need to burn it off of a brand new barrel?
I did a small picnic pork last week and I am really impressed with how efficient it is with the charcoal.
Right now, it's smoking a 22lb turkey.
