Customer Questions & Answers

Can this barrel be used to burn leaves in? If yes, how do I remove the top? Does it need to be vented at the bottom?

Asked by: Vanessa
We only recommend burning seasoned hardwood within the barrel as we have not tested the safety of the unit with any other fuel type.

how much heat can this take

Asked by: chris
Google the melting point of steel and subtract about 45 percent from that, thats the approximate tolerance limit you'll have. Overheating it will shorten it's operational lifespan.

so as long as you burn off any residue left inside barrel this can be used as a smoker with wood and coal or just wood?

it will be an offset heat and smoke source so next to cedar house piping in heat and smoke
Asked by: chris
You are much better off buying a new or refurbished tank that was originally intended for propane, the metal of this drum is too thin for for what you want to do with it, it wouldn't last long. If your serious about it there are numerous companies who will make you a custom cut and welded steel cylinder specifically for cooking, unless you know a friend with lots of spare time, who happens to own a welder/media blaster and a plasma cutter. These custom jobs are typically not expensive, extremely well made and most companies are willing to either drop ship it VIA freight truck or have you come pick it up.

can I use this as a steamer/BBQ cooker? Specifically, has the inside been coated with any chemicals/coatings which I could not wash off?

Asked by: chef
The Vogelzang 55 gal. Drum could have residue from oils still inside the drum, you will need to make sure it is burned off before using it for any cooking purpose.

I ordered it and when it was delivered I saw you couldn't remove the top. What good is a burn barrel if you can't take off the top??? When I ordered it it suggested I purchase a grate for it. What a joke. How are we supposed to get the grate in a sealed up barrel? I have returned the barrel and am very disappointed. You should have a proper description for the barrel.

I like the fact that the shipping was free and that I chose the option to have it delivered to my local Home Depot store. I was notified that it was there and I picked it up at my convenience. It came primed in a light gray color, so I will need to paint it as it will be used outside in the weather. I would recommend the additional paint if you plan on using it outside.

It was my impression the barrel was made by Vogelzang and it would withstand higher temperatures than a standard metal barrel. The gauge of your barrel was no different than the ones I use at work which I could have got for free. The barrel you sent me was a regular steel drumb only clean and sandblasted. That was deceptive.

In our case we thought the item was an acceptable container for residential wood heating purposes. According to the enclosed leaflet it not certified as such.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from If you are looking for an old rusted barrel by from this vendor I was very upset when I received the two barrels I purchased. The barrels looked as if they were sitting outside for years in the rain. They were not the color that was shown on the website. They were discolored, multi-colored and rusted. I called customer service to complain and to process a return. Customer service placed a new order for one barrel this time and put in the notes that if the barrel did not look like what was pictured on the website do not process the order; cancel the order. Well I got the barrel from the second order and it was not exactly what was shown online. It had a little rust on it, the color was one color and looked old. It was not the gray color shown on the website and it had dents. Needless to say I returned this one as well. Home Depot should remove this item and this seller from their website.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is great for a home made barrel grill Well this product worked out perfect, I made a home made barrel grill and wanted a brand new barrel with no chemicals in it, the price was great compared to other prices that was out there and the shipping was super fast, it was delivered a week earlier than expected. This barrel is well worth it and I will not have to buy another grill for some years now, very impressed with over all product.
