    I don't know what the actual temp is, but it cooks the way I want it to, so I don't guess it really matters.

    Are you burning it out to remove the interior lining? I'll have to check, but I think we buy unlined open head barrels. My guess is that they're less than $45.

    I'll let Bubba speak for himself, but I'm guessing you cook the bejesus out of it just ensure that anything harmful that once was in the barrel is now gone.

    Ya, that's about right, this had paint in it, the burning process removes the paint inside and outside.
    I'll wire brush the inside before seasoning and the outside just need's a little scuff and it's ready for finish!

    Do you use open head drums or do you use tight head drums and cut the head out?

    Looks like your off to a great start!

    I picked up brand new open headed, unlined drums here in Dallas for $32 at Dallas Steel Drums... If anybody is interested.

    I get used once food grade drums, open top with lid & clamping ring, here in KC for $12. Going to see if I can work out a cheaper "in bulk" deal.
