    “Step 4: Burn off the inside”

    This is all it says about safety. Wow. Epoxy resins, hazardous materials, etc, do not always burn off completely, nor do they burn cleanly. If the barrel has a resin coating (common for food containers), do not use. Nor if it may have contained something other than food. This should be “common sense” but unfortunately….

    While I do agree that not all things burn off well there it’s a trick that you carb do in order to use any kind puff metal barrel regardless what was in it… get you one off those listings hand held now torches and burn the inside slowly heading the metal to to around 550 degrees and that will take any contaminants that still remain out of the metal.
