Dang I still cant find a 55 gallon drum, I thought I had a one using Craiglist but, I have sent 2 emails after he responded to my ad, nothing, oh well.
I did find one I can get shipped to me for less then 100, I believe brand new. But, lol, they gave me a ship date in the middle of next month as the earliest. The only good thing is that they are just down the road from me so might drive there monday to see if I can get my hands on one sooner.
If anybody live near Elgin, IL and has a drum let me know
I have everything else ready to go, basket made, parts bought and weber grill lid and grill all waiting for a drum.
Edit: yay, found my drum, it was used for mineral oil, and has been cleaned already.
