Weight: approx. 40 pounds

Outside Height: approx. 35 inches

Outside Diameter: approx. 23 inches

Condition: USED! This was a closed top barrel that the previous business paid to turn into open tops. The new top chime that the lid sits on can be somewhat sharp; please be careful.  The top chime is rolled down which sometimes creates a warp that can be seen in pictures. When rolled some drums have a separation at the top of the weld where the lid would sit from being rolled slightly to far. The lid fits tight. Barrels may contain food/syrup/oil residue from previous use but cleaning will be easier since these are open top barrels.

Barrel Uses: Ideal for food storage. Very popular for making an upright smoker; watch a video one our customers made at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rieL7vMYKkI 

* Please  take caution when handling, barrels/kegs are very heavy, use proper form when lifting, stacking, etc.  We can`t be responsible for improper use or handling of barrels/kegs once purchased. Please clean and sterilize your barrel/keg whether it is new or used based on what you intend to use if for.
