Do they have an online site by chance? If they do can you link us?

I use shipping drums that contained nuts, bolts, washers, etc. The drums are unlined as the nuts, bolts, etc. are packed in a heavy duty plastic liner. I should mention I get them for $18, no dents and a lid ring. My supplier gets them from the ports if that is any help to you.

No idea what costs elsewhere are, but in Los Angeles, Apex sells refurbished "smoker drums" (they actually call them that) that have no paint job and no lining and have been sand-blasted for $35 a piece. The lady I spoke to just now says that their refurbished drums are certified for liquids without leakage so they shouldn't let in any air that you want.

The site isn't too helpful, but their staff was helpful.

I'm on UDS overload. I've read so much my head is spinning.

I'm just gonna ask b/c I think I missed this part. Does a new unlined drum still need a major burnout? Or can I just rub some oil and season it?

Burn it out good. It's not gonna have high temp paint on it. So you wanna get barrel hot enough to remove paint. After that rattle can it with high temp paint.

Pretty sure if it is a new unlined drum, even if unpainted, it will have been treated with rust inhibitor and still requires a burn-out.
