EDIT: Well, I think I'm probably wrong... Salvage drums are subject to UN req's/testing just like 55'ers are.

Generally the 85's are around 100.00 and worth every freaking penny. Clean 55's should be about 50.00 though you do live out there in the land of milk, honey, and over priced cost of living so there's no telling why.

So from the sound of things, I may be looking at a $140 85-gallon drum. We'll see what they come back with, but if it's over $100 it's a no-go in my book, at least for UDS v1.0...

Worked on it last night. Didn't take long at all. Two hours max. And I was being slow.
I'm gonna switch to a 22.5" food grate. 22" was too small. All I need to do now is get a lid, meat temp gauge and fabricate a charcoal basket.

One more question. If I get a food grade drum sand blasted inside and out, is there a need to have it burned out as well?
Can someone help me out here? thanks!

If the sand blasting actually gets rid of all the liner, then you are good to go without a burn. If there is some liner left, then I would burn.

I bet you will be OK without a burn, though.

If you blast it to bare metal, you won't need a burn.

Awesome!! Thank you so much guys! I might just burn to be on the safe side if I notice any part of the liner left.

Got 5 85ers off Craigslist for $30 each (and the guy threw in a 55er because I bought him out!) - Ive been on the hunt for good barrels for over a year though! If you do go with an 85, here is a link to a great grate source ;) -

Yeah, I've seen that grate... it's great... ;-)

So my local dealer wants $169 for an 85 gallon drum. All of their drums are lined with a corrosion inhibitor too. I'll be going down there sometime next week to see what this corrosion inhibitor is like... if I have to sand blast it, I'll be getting a used lined 55-gallon drum from a friend of mine for free because I'd be in the same boat anyway.

How much does it cost to sand blast a 55 drum?

No standard price. As best as I can remember, we have seen anywhere from $25-40 dollars reported on here.
