View Full Version : Burning out the Red Liner

After reading page after page and thread after thread of UDS builds I finally scored 3 barrels (with the red liner) and cut the tops and drilled the holes for all of them in less than an hour. Started the burn out and had all three going pretty good. Just to make sure I got this right, I burned the barrels until the red liner turned black then started to flake and then the barrel turned pinkish. Picture below of the start of the pink spots. 95% of two of the barrels are all pink now.

If I get the whole thing pink, I should be good to go, right?

Then just get the wire brush out and clean it up real good. A nice coat of paint on the outside to keep it from rusting. When completed put some vegetable oil on the inside and give it a seasoning burn. You should then be ready to do some smoking.

If you have a 3,000psi or 4,000 psi pressure washer, use it first then wire brush you will save a lot of time and pain.

That looks like the tan liner that is in the drum sitting in my garage. Did you do anything besides use the pressure washer?

Ron:
I burned it for a couple hours with hard wood and softwood while cooking hot dogs and drinking beer.

But other wise that is it. I did not even use a grinder for the little that was left behind. (those little red spots) It is a red painted liner.

If you can lay the drum down w/o it starting a grass fire then start your fire and slowly roll it around after each area gets really hot. Should take care of all the liner.

Thanks... I don't have any place to burn it out, so I was hoping that the pressure washer by itself did the trick :( I guess I have to find someone to sandblast it.

Rick: Does all the "pink" need to be removed?
