Question Really, really, reconditioned drum!

Hello all!

Been lurking for days reading, studying, and planning my first UDS build.

I have a question for the veterans . I located a company that reconditions open top drums. I mean, really reconditions!
- wash
- run through an industrial furnace to burn off all coatings inside and out
- bead blast to remove any remaining ash and paint
- wash
- paint ( I talked with them and I can get the drum before paint )

My neighborhood frowns on large fires, so I'm wondering, based on the above treatment, would I be OK with just a high temp seasoning burn or two instead of a full on pallet wood burn?

Thanks for all the wonderful information, advice and photos! can't wait!

Dave

If you can guarantee they burned and blasted it then you should be good to go after a quick washing.

Outstanding, and in the background it sounded as if I heard of lot of volunteers for the grill.

I bought my drum new and they told me that nothing was on the interior so I didn't see the need for a big burn in it.

Airbalancer (Mike), your build looks great! One question, is your ash pan a galvanized pan? If so you may want to use something besides the galvanized, especially since the hot ashes will be on it. Also be very careful welding it as I'm sure you know!! Just my .02 worth!

It is galvanized but its actually under the expanded metal basket. It's one of the few things I've seen at tractor supply thats made in the USA, and only $2.99. :) I did tack weld it on, but who hasn't done that before

What if a few hot coals drop through? I would swap out the galvanized component. Not worth the risk.

DON"T Toss that on the pile, it raises near the top all by itself.

Those racks alone are a work of art. Excellent idea there.

I can see using something like that idea on the charcoal basket to get the charcoal basket height to where one could grill at 300C (575F(unny) degrees approximate) or higher
