Depending on the chemical I would consider trying to get your hands on a food grade drum.....then get some wood and BURN BABY BURN!!!! You also might want to start reading the UDS thread it's a major help.

Are Food Grade drums really food grade after you try
and burn that crap out?
I'm on my third drum and none of them have been Food Grade.
Makes no difference after a good prolonged burn, in my opinion.

I've eaten some damned good Que prepared by old guys, in old fuel oil tanks.
I doubt that they were food grade. Oh and, what about the thousands
of offsets that have been built from old oil pipe and sold at the retail level?

Just trying to get some of you Guys out of the closet.
Tell the truth.

I guess your right Weiser.....I know a lot of guys who used oil drums and tanks for some pits and smokers. I guess its how comfortable you feel cooking on it knowing what was is it. I just played it safe with a food grade drum. But I do understand where you're coming from.
