Question Food Grade UDS Barrels

I have a guy that I can get food grade UDS barrels from. He says they are sprayed with a rust inhibitor, Thats not the same as a liner right? He says it should burn out very easily. They held some sort of soy lithium food product at one time, but are pretty much new barrels. Any one know about this?

I'd go and have a look at them, if the "rust inhibitor" is a flat primer color, it will burn out fairly easy, but if its a glossy enamel/epoxy finish it will be more of a hassle to get rid of. If they are all you can find and they are free-go for it. If not hold out for unlined drums.

They are $20 each. The guy said they are "sprayed" with a rust inhibitor. I would think a lined barrel would be a little more than sprayed right?

I just got off the phone with a different supplier much closer to me and they have unlined open top barrels. I dont really need the locking lid device, but im sure I may get one anyway. Im picking up 2 barrels this Friday.....then building the UDS's next week hopefully.

You may find that the locking lid ring comes in handy during your cooking session.

They said it was some sort of soy lithium food product that was stored in the barrel, and the inside of the drum was sprayed with a rust inhibitor. I wouldnt think a liner would be spray on would it?

My Drum had a sprayed on rust inhibitor coating, wasn't hard to get off, burned it real well and then rotary wire brushed.

I cant do any wire wheeling or wire brushing due to breathing problems. I can only hope if I get one with sprayed on rust inhibitor that it burns off.
