Mine had some red rubber lining on the inside. You HAVE to burn the **** out of it to be safe. After that, rough clean the stuff still hanging onto the inside. I then coated the inside with cooking oil and lit some charcoal to season it. This left a nice, sticky oily black coating to prevent rust.

I don't know. Mine didn't have a liner. I just burned the hell out of it, until it appeared to be a raw metal barrel, took about 6 hours of a BIG burn.

I got some scraps of wood going, and then went over to the neighbors, where he has a lot of scrubwood which was cut down and left about a year ago. I drug some of those small trees home with a chain behind the Jeep, and then cut them the height of the barrel, minus about 6 inches. That way I got a good burn all the way up. (I did drill the three holes in the bottom for the pipe nipples first, which gave it a REALLY good burn) But really, if it's a food grade barrel, I don't think you have to burn it- just start brushing that liner out. From what I read, the burn won't make a difference when it comes to getting that crap out.

I did do a "test" burn in mine to coat the inside. After only one burn, it looked like the inside had been hit with a shiny bedliner.

I'm not sure if they all have that epoxy liner. The liners I've seen were sort of reddish/orangish.

I was thinking about that, and meant to text you back yesterday. You may want to just cut the bottom out completely, low enough to still give the grate a place to rest, but with a pretty big hole in the bottom to let the ash fall. I expect that might work pretty well, but I really don't know what the eff I'm talking about. Just seems like it'd work from a common sense persepctive. Ditch the whole bottom 1/4 of that old grill.

If that bung is threaded, I saw one guy who got a threaded piece of 2" to screw in for a little smoke stack. Probably unnecessary, but it looks cool.

They hold the guidance section of a GBU-12. They are 60 gallons. A tad shorter than a standard 55, but about 3" wider.

Should still work right? I hope...

Should work. Don't know why it wouldn't. Although you're going to have a **** of a time finding a "standard" round grill grate that will fit in it. May have to make one yourself.
