I get mine at a local place that reconditions them. Maybe there is some one local to you that does it to. Check your local yellow pages, or put an ad on Craigslist. I would gladly send ya one, but shipping probably wouln't be cheap.:twocents:

I don't know what you have available in your area but check with any food processing places. Also check some of the flea markets and as mentioned your phone book for any possible reconditioners. It would be cool to get one you didn't have to spend the time to burn hard and grind out (no liner).

Best to ya in your search.

Google steel drums and then the name of the nearest city. You'll find them.

Took me awhile but I found one FREE! This guy even helped load it on my trailer.
For some funny reason, the grass was all dead around it even with all the rain we've had this year. Go figure.....
I can't wait to get it smokin'. Got to be a much healthier way of cookin' than all the stuff I been eatin'.

LOL! That's funny. I was actually going to post a link to Rocky Flats, out here near my place - shut down/decomissioned nuclear facility.

Yea it did, had about an inch of some sort of greenish day-glo stuff on the sides. Looked like that stuff in the movie Ghostbusters.

Another funny thing happened. When I was burning it out, all the squirrels and birds in the tree right above the drum fell out of the tree and broke their necks. Go figure...........
