First time build, to burnout or not?
Hello all, first time posting here,
I just recently purchased a reconditioned, unlined openheaded drum. It has been cleaned and the outside was sandblasted (inside may have also been, not sure). The owner believed it may have contained some sort of petroleum product but there is no residual smell or anything. Do you think it's necessary to do a full burnout? I'd obviously rather not.

I would at least give it a good hot, sudsy bath on the inside.
Rinse well and fire that bad boy up.
Go get you some cheap chicken quarters to play with and learn it's personality.
Take some pics, we all wanna see.

I myself would build a fire in it first.
Better safe than sorry.
Why in the hell should I have to "Press 1 for English?"
If its unlined, as in no liner period, as in bare metal, then spray some oil on the inside, fire it up, and get to cooking!

If it is commercially conditioned of will have zero residue in it.
Build it, fire if up, and throw something greasy on it.
Yup - it's good to get moving on. Drill it out for hardware and valves and next thing you know your a member of the Drum Corp
