You can make an excellent barbecue out of a 55 gal drum.

Before you use it for anything, think about what it used to contain and how safe it will be for its new application...

If they have tops and you have a welder, make a pontoon. If they don't have tops then try making a metal version of the 55 gal chair. You can bury them and use them as planters, or take one and make a robot body! . . . man. . . I wish I had some 55 gal. steel drums. . . .

Oh, and you could make an aluminum forge/foundry. So many things you can do! If you had enough you could fill them with sand/dirt/mud/clay and use them as a foundation for a house/shed!
