Buy this & you’ll love it. which didn't effect anything I had to do while building smoker... Great product. It arrived in a big box with only a few minor dings. Have no way to cut top off.
Is it food safe? I want to make moonshine with it NO. This should never be considered food safe. Can this drum be used for diesel? Yes, it is a newly manufactured barrel that has not had anything in it. Any suggestions how to easily cut the openings for the stove kit? You can take a cutoff grinder to follow the outline of the inside margin of the door and the flue. It's makes a lot of noise. Also you can get a heavy duty tin snips to cut it. There is also a reciprocating saw you might try or a jig saw you can use.
