First off, my apologies to mi6op.... Last night I somehow managed to post this as a reply to mi6op's thread about lager fridges rather than starting a new one.
So I'll try again:
Well I saw a post about a 55gal bucket....
I got a yellow 5 gallon bucket, no lid. It was apparently full of Pickles at McAlister's Deli at some point in time.... but it was by the trash at work. They cater of us a lot but that's a lot of pickles.
Anyway, it's obviously food grade plastic. But I saw a 2007 date on it... not sure if that was a manufacture date, a date the pickles were put in, or an expiration date, but it was a little dusty inside, and I figure it had been sitting in someone's office.
Maybe a good sanitization bucket?
Or I could use it as a wash bucket for the cars. Or start one of those street drumming bands. Or kick it and tell people that I kicked the bucket and see what kind of looks they give me.
Any other good ideas? Remember... no lid. But has a nice handle.
