    Look at construction sites. there were a bunch of barrels at my worksite that aluminum and some metal came in (washers,nuts,bolts,etc). Also I used to pick some up that had laundry soap in them (worst case scenario=deer meat comes out smelling like Tide the first time you use it ?)
    Hope you find some clean ones...

    How'd you clean the inside? I've been looking for a tank for a smoker with no luck so far. I'm too chicken to cut into a propane tank and the only compressor tanks I've found are too expensive. A guy around the corner has drums that had die lube in them and I've been wondering if they could be cleaned enough to be safe?

    we used a jig saw to cut the barrel.had to put a 1 1/2 strap no inside for the door. not much welding done on it. just the legs. he didnt want to spend to much on it didnt know it would work.it has a grill garte 2in down from the top to hang deer sausage on. he use it lastnight and the turn out realey good. i got a roll. thanks for looking and the reply.

    Terry,
    Nice looking job !!! What did you use to cut the drum out with? We tried a plasma cutter at school, just as bad as an oxy torch. Got much better with a cutoff wheel on a grinder following it with masking tape to keep a straight line.
    Looks like you made a lip on the inside of the door opening also?
    thanks for the pics, bert
