Default Quick question on UDS

I'm sure I could find the answer on that uber thread, but I didn't feel like searching through all those pages.

I finally got my drum and am currently burning out the lining with a sizable fire. It seems like I should wash the inside afterward. Is this correct, or am I good to go after the fire?

Definitely wash. What kind of lining was it? An actual liner or just a rust preventative?

An actual liner. It was for apple juice concentrate. I'm figuring since the paint on the outside is nearly gone now, the inside should be good. Fire's still burning hot.

Never hurts to squirt a little Dawn in there and give a sloshing around and rinse.
Even tho a good hot fire would probably kill more than Dawn would lol. But hey, might as well start clean...

.

I washed mine out after the burn and then sprayed it with PAM. Even if you don't use it anytime soon, that'll keep the rust away until you get a chance to season it proper.

What color was the liner? I fear you might be disappointed and at least some of the liner will be there after the burn. I had a barrel once that had a horrible liner. I could hold a weed burner on the inside of the barrel and get it glowing read. The paint on the outside would burn off but the liner was still there.

The liner was yellow. The paint was green.

Perhaps I'll just take a wire wheel to it afterward to touch it up.

Definitely, whichever route you take, once the barrel is down to bare metal on the inside, you should treat it, either spray it with pam or other cheap cooking oil (my favorite) or rub it down with some sort of grease, some people use shortening.

This just keeps rust from developing. Now, the initial burn and cook can be done at a convenient time.
