I have recently seen turkey cooked at camp in a . . . .
say we call it a ROOT beer keg?
Such beverage kegs are made from stainless steel and will
not have the problems with zinc, as found in galvanized.
Trash cans can also have lead solder seems.
I have "heard" that the old beverage kegs can be had
fairly cheap, if you find the right source. The kegs
can crack, or the valves fail over time, and are then
recylcled. Nominal USED keg costs, are from free to $5.
Of course, you can buy a full one, and just loose the deposit.
Of coourse you would need to dispose of the "contents".
Although, there are still some places that make a birtch
beer (SP?) in those kegs.
