Default where to get 55 gallon barrels in northern DE?

I'm looking for a 55 gallon steel barrel to build into a smoker. Does anyone know where to get one in northern Delaware? I'm also looking for 3 stainless 55 gallon barrels but I'm not in as much of a hurry to get those.

Did you look on Craigslist? There's a guy in Rising Sun, MD that is always selling 55 gallon drums.
