Product Overview

The US Stove DR55 closed (sealed top) head steel drum barrel is unpainted and suitable for use with any barrel camp stove kit. The barrel camp stove is one of the most basic stove designs. The DR55 barrels have been used, cleaned and then bead blasted. The DR55 drums have not been painted so there may be small areas of surface rust that can easily be sanded out. Oils may be present on the surfaces that will need to be burned off during the initial use. The DR55 can be used with the BSK1000 model for a complete barrel camp stove kit.
  • This barrel has a welded, closed top and bottom so that it can be used as a primitive wood stove. If you want to use as a burn barrel, you will need to cut the top off
  • Heavy duty steel assures longer performance
  • Material thickness: top 18-Gauge, body 20-Gauge, bottom 18-Gauge
  • Barrel paint and color finish may vary, they are coated with a rust inhibitor
  • Creating a barrel stove is easy, just cut a hole for the door in the end of the barrel and cut a hole in the side for the flue, attach the legs, door and flue to the stove and add wood
  • Barrels are new and have not been used for chemicals
  • Photos represent some of the possible finishes but we cannot guarantee which color will be received
  • We recommend the stove be painted with a high temperature stove paint for the best looks

Bought two barrels from The Home Depot and a barrel kit four years ago. Man what a perfect, inexpensive heating solution for my shop. I also purchased various 6 inch black stove pipes for my system sold here at The home Depot. I have kept high heat stove paint on my stove every season and have changed out my pipe once. The key to a safe system is to watch for pin holes that develop in the barrel and pipe. This is an indication that the barrel and pipe is breaking down. My advise is to keep an extra barrel and pipe on hand just in case. This barrel heater will heat my shop that is not insulated comfortably even on the coldest days. If an expensive heater is not in your budget I highly recommend this brand for a shop type environment. I do not recommend this single wall system for home use as there are many safety hazards to consider. The Home Depot offers many heating solutions for in-home use and triple wall pipe for those applications.

It's a barrel. It does what I wanted it to do. Came with a lid which was a pain to get off, but that was my fault for not reading thoroughly.
