Default Propane Torch or Burn It

Hey folks, just got my 55 gallon drum for my first UDS build. Is it easier to use a propane torch to burn off the inside of the drum and the outside paint or should I just build a fire in it? I found a torch at Harbor Frieght and the price is right and it seems faster. thanks for the help, ~Anthony

I have made several UDS's and I think it is easier to burn it out.

While I had a big fire going in mine, I hit it with the flame thrower as my boys call my weed burner. Made quick work of the paint that way and satisfied my pyro tendencies at the same time.

Just burn it out, cheaper and much less time consuming

drill your intake holes before you burn it out

Yes, this a must! Gotta get some air to that fire to get it up to a reasonable temp to do any good.

Bonfire time.

I used some tree trimmings and wood scraps, nice cleansing fire left nothing but ash on the inside where a tan liner once lived.

open your air intakes, get 2 or 3 pallets, (free if you look) and then cut them long ways, start a small fire in the bottom of your drum, then add the pallet wood. keep it going till all the paint is off. If you see one side is burning off more then the other, move the wood around. this will take about a hour or so. when done let it cool, then wipe it off with some simple green or oven cleaner.

Thumbs up

I have done both methods and have to say the easiest and quickest is the weed burner. It also does a much better job. The bonfire that many do does not do a good job of burning the liner off the bottom or below the intake holes. The weed burner will make quick work of these problem areas. Also, the weed burner is the best way I have found to light the coals in the charcoal basket.
