Are Steel Drums Food Grade?

Most of our new lined steel drums are FDA approved for food or pharmaceutical storage.

Unlined and Reconditioned drums are not FDA approved for food or pharmaceutical storage.

What’s the best drum to make a BBQ or Smoker?

All our unlined drums can be adapted to use as a BBQ or a smoker, however, one must be cautious never to cut or weld a drum in which the plugs or cover are still secured. If air is trapped inside a drum, a build-up of pressure, when cutting or welding, can lead to an explosion. The unlined drums with a rust inhibitor can be easily burned out with a propane torch at the same time you are removing the original exterior paint. 210 Litre Drum BBQ Smokers & Grills

Can you store Water in a steel drum?

Unlined steel drums will rust. Epoxy-phenolic lined drums can store water, but plastic drums would be a more cost effective solution.
