Picked up a 55 gal drum today. It was used to carry energy drink powder. For you guys that have an UDS bout how long it take yall to burn them out? Mine has a reddish color liner in it almost looks like a primer. Should i burn it a few times?
I vote to start cooking in it and if the stuff tastes funny give it to the neighbors. Thats how I always planned to handle that contingentcy should it rear it's ugly haid. Now if the liner start popping and slinging hunks over everything I would not eat the chunks. Just brush it off or squirt it down with an airgun etc. My barrell has got too hot to touch and the liner aint never budged on trying to come unhinged. Now I dont cook in it I use it to insulate and cover the R2D2 water smoker. I have gave this a lot of thought and do believe that be the highest calling for a 55 gal barrell in the bbq hobby.
I tried burnin mine out, the thin melted an made the most god awful black smoke yall ever seen! Couldn't use it fer a smoker after that.
