Get it sandblasted, that's what i did. My barrel was food grade but it had the red liner in it. Other brethern recommended sandblasting to save time - best decision I ever made.

Sandblasting will take care of it but if thats not in the budget a few good burns and a wire wheel on the drill will do the trick

If you've got the time to do it burn the sucker out yourself with a Harbor Freight weed burner http://www.harborfreight.com/propane-torch-91033.html Just hook that up to a propane tank and go to work from the outside of the drum. Go slowly until the steel is almost red. This will take about 1-1/2 hours. Then I pressure wash the inside to see what is left. I may wire brush if needed. Pressure washing really gets the dust out of the pores in the steel.
I checked on sandblasting around here and it was stupid expensive. I've got more time than money so I did it myself.

8$ a barrel is a pretty good deal! If you have the time to get them all cleaned out, that would be the way to go.

Yea I was in a similar situation. Bought 2 barrels for 8 bucks with tan liner. Burning them out wasn't an option so I tried to angle grind it out. Not easy, thought about sandblasting them but I figured at that point I might as well get a reconditioned one for 40 bucks. Suckers came straight out of a furnace with no paint or liner.

ZERO point to buy a food grade barrel. The liner is what makes its "food grade" and if werer removing it...... then it just a steel drum. Soooo don't stress over "food grade" just go get your self a salvage drum and be happy.. there about 65 in Alaska so I know you can get them cheaper then that just start looking for industrial supplies... safety stores, haz-wast supply dealers ect.....

Just my 2 cents
