Here are some pics of the new drum. What do you guys think? I think it needs a really good washing. Also this drum is a lil different from the 1st. The lid seems much heavier and the fit is different. The first lid had more of a "cup" on the lip of the lid, this one seems more like it sits on top of the drum and not a snug fit.
My idea is first to burn a few logs of wood, hose it down or power wash the inside and then season it with Crisco like the 1st one.

DC_BBQ who sandblasted yours as in what type of business was it? Also regarding the fat, I noticed I had that on my 1st one too. Was from the Crisco and when it cooled it formed like a pad of butter on the bottom. The only thing I noticed that was a pain was when it cooled and the ash pan kinda stuck to it. That's all.
