Default Drum Safety Question Please

I spoke to a guy Friday about some drums he has for sale. He told me he has burn drums and drums for rain barrels. I said I was looking for a food grade drum to be used for a UDS. He told me he knew what type I was looking for but he didn't have any at this time.He said he has several drums that contained one of the ingrediants to make stain but the drums had a heavy heavy duty plastic liner inside the drum that held the liquid. When he removes the plastice liner he said there is nothing but clean metal and if liquid gets into the drum after he removes the liner the drum will rust. He said he has drums where he has removed this liner and there is no rust at all just clean bare metal. Now to my question. Have any or you brethern heard of this and would you feel safe in using one of these drums. Please let me know what you think.

Thanks

Definitely a score. You'll still need to burn the paint off the outside but its NOTHING compared to burning out the liner. I finished my drum just this weekend and I spent WAY too much time with my head and an angle grinder inside the drum.

I just posted the pics, check it out.

I used a weed burner on mine, then my dad used the grinder on the inside.

Not sure why you need to burn the paint off the outside?

If its metal inside, give it a good cleaning and season away!
You just saved several hours of crawling inside a drum.....
The paint on the outside is better than anything your gonna put on it, if you like the color, leave it alone!

I figured the paint on the outside wouldn't hold up to the heat but temps are low enough I guess. Anyone have problems with original paint?

If you leave the lid off after a cook and space out and answer the phone, or walk off and deliver your Chicken turn in box and start BS'n and sampling Chili, I can guarantee that the paint on the lower third of the drum will be burning off! And when I saw the size of your charcoal basket, I'm fairly certain it could happen to your drum-even if you paint it with High-Temp BBQ paint.

Don't ask me how I know this.
