I do large volumes so my discounted rates wouldn't be similar. I would think one , two or three might be blasted for $15.00 to $40.00 and powder coating might be $60.00 to $85.00. I would think in most parts of the country one can find blasting easier than thought. Try Monument companies that blast images in headstones. They and many other businesses will fill their time with hourly work, along with actual blast companies. Two 55gallon lids, both sides the other day cost $10.00 here in the midwest. I might add we use standard temperature powder rather than high heat. We also use firebricks in our design. The standard should be fine up to 350 to 400 degrees, and then switch to high heat type. As far as insulation goes, there are other types of coatings that will have insulation properties. Very expensive, mainly because they work. I used them over 30 years in my racing career.I don't really justify the cost for use in smokers. That's one of the reasons I use firebricks in every smoker made here. Also we've had no good experience with soda blasting. Couldn't get anything to stick after many types of prep. Steve.

ssbbqguy,

Would you please explain the fire bricks? How high do they go?

A pair of old gloves and a cheap pound of bacon problem solved.

The firebricks are placed on the insides, standing up two rows with patio stones on the very bottom. All held in by a brick retainer that we make and sell. Directs heat where we want rather than heating up everything around. Much more efficient. Steve.

My barrel didn't have a spray on liner. I bought it new.
It was sprayed with some kind of rust preventative, so I filled it with pallet wood and fired it up. Burned hot and clean.
I cleaned the inside when it cooled, built the UDS that day.
I sprayed the insides with Olive Oil...
Dark thirty I filled the basket with Lump charcoal and fired it up.
I let it burn at 250° for about an hour then made up two 'Fatties' and tossed them inside to smoke.
A couple of hours later I had two 'Fatties' and the insides of my drum were cured, like an old Iron skillet.
When I cleaned it up the next day, the insides were a very shiny Black.

PS: The scrambled eggs, and diced potatoes were great with thick slices of 'Fattie'.
