Default Ugly Drum Smoker - Food Grade Liner

Just got a free barrel that held pear juice and it has a liner. Do I need to burn/sand that out or can I just season over it?

Thanks,

Jes

Remove it. It will not hold a seasoning and has the chance to burn and off-gas while cooking.

Default How many BTUs on a weed burner needed to burn out the liner?

So, if using a weed burner is the best method (except sandblasting - which isn't easy) what is the BTU output needed?

I can get a weedburner for $50 - $60 but I have no idea where to get sandblasting done.

I've never used a weed burner for this... just load it up with scrap wood (fill it full) and light'er up.

Be sure and drill your vent holes first.

Check with metal shops or cemetery monument companies. I have gotten prices of $20-$25 to sandblast just the interior of a drum.

I'm thinking these guys are taking the weed burner directly to the interior of the drum, not making a fire. Maybe I'm wrong.

I am currently building an Ugly Drum Smoker and I made the mistake of getting one with a red liner. I should have known better since I researched this forum and found numerous warnings against drums with liners in it. In my defence, I thought the liner was a rubber coating or something similar (i thought mine was paint, yes iam this dense.) Harbor freight sells a $20 weed burner what worked well to burn out/loosen most of the liner. I recommend burning liner out that stuff smells awful when heat it applied (and the smoke it produces ain't no thin blue). The reputation of the red liner is well deserved i still have to grind out the liner (im about 1/3 of the way through). Not looking forward to climbing inside and grinding out the rest
