Bengle, just a thought. You notice from all the brethren, putting the seal back on for air control is not suggested. That is a seal that is not a food safe component when you add heat. It is a seal that can produce some nasty air when heated up. That is why no one uses them. Just trying to keep you healthy.

I may be wrong but I think he means the closure ring. I am certain we pulled all that stuff out and threw it away

If it's the outer metal ring, no problem. The term seal may have thrown me off.

Living in the land of Wal-Mart and JB Hunt has it's advantages. It seems like everywhere you turn there are barrels. I head west and there's a McKee Foods, "Little Debbie" factory. East and they are stacked up in flatbeds on the side of the road for sale. A lot of folks in rural areas use them for burn barrels.

I'm in town, so I will probably have to head to my bro-in-law's to burn it out lest the "neighborhood nazi's" (POA) will be on my tail.

Thanks to all for the tips and tricks! Will post build pics soon.

Thanks...
Just got one myself, sorry best picture I have right now. It fit after modifying the rim (bent inward with cresent wrench) and adding the second grill on top. I just push it down until it hits the grill support bolts. Covered the extra holes from the hinges with fridge magnets.


More build pics can be found here, with some pron for added measure.

Thanx for giving me "The Addiction"!

I am looking to add to my drum collection.... I found a guy selling drums that had insulation in them. I know some people say only food grade, and some say who cares just burn it out....I am somewhere in between, but I have no idea what kinds of chemicals are in insulation.

What do ya'll think?

I Think I'd Shy Away From them....Unless you have the MSDS Sheet of the particular insulation there's no way to know what chemicals made up the Insulation.....Better Safe Than Sorry Down The Road.....
