Default Question aboutnew drum smoker

Im making my first drum smoker. I bought a new barrel that has not had anything in it and it doesn't have a liner. I burned it out and sanded the outside. Do I really need to sand the inside since it has not had anything in it?

If it doesn't have a liner than you are fine.

You didn't have to burn it out or sand the inside.

I had to burn it out to get the paint off of the outside but the inside doesn't have a liner. It is a new barrel so nothing has ever been in it.

You are good to go. Finish your build and get some meat in that thing already!

No need to get the paint off the outside. Just paint over it.

I've built half a dozen UDS's with all new drums. Kept drum exterior paint on all of them. No paint issues whatsoever unless you get over 600 or so.

interesting. I was wondering about this

I am going to build one one of these days and have 2 drums that are unlined and the black paint on the outside of them is perfect.

I was hoping to skip buring the paint off and just using it as is?

Yes you can, no problem. On mine, I scotch-brite the exterior paint and wipe clean with acetone. Then I paint it with Rustoleum 2000 degree flat black paint over the factory paint to use as a primer. Then I paint the drum with regular Rustoleum paint.

good idea to wash our or wiped down the inside. Could be some leftover manufacturing oils, etc.
