epoxy phenolic coating

Postby robdogtn » November 30th, 2013, 12:13 am

Does epoxy phenolic coating come off when doing a burn in? I have a used rusty barrel that I was originally going to use and spend lots of time cleaning and sanding. But I just found a brand new drum that has epoxy phenolic coating on the interior.

I wish I could answer this question. My tank is relatively new and the outer surface has an epoxy primer coating on it. All I know is that from welding the smoker parts on the inside, the epoxy primer on the outer surface has essentially turned to dust. Likely it would but that won't negate a thorough cleaning .

Are you talking about a 55 gallon barrel? If you're talking about the liner inside the barrel it doesn't come completely off during a burn but it breaks it down enough to where it can be easily cleaned out using powdered comet and a nylon brush
