Anyone know where I can get a stainless steel 55 gallon barrel locally?

The title says it all. Can't find one in town, shipping costs more than the barrel anywhere online.
Surely in Houston, TX, someone has these for sale somewhere...

you need to search 55 gallon drum, not barrel. Here's 2 rusty ones for $5.

These are pretty cheap, but the lower price ones aren't in stock.

Shipping is 100 bucks.

Bruce, if you don't know anyone locally, I won't even bother looking around here.
Please let me know

Same here, seems like you could get new for the price with shipping/a cheaper used one.
Maybe as a last resort we could split shipping.

Let us know Tiller.

I need one for my gourmet mushroom farm. I'm making a bulk steam sterilizer out of it. The regular steel ones would rust out after just a few uses and then contaminate my mushrooms.

Regular steel is not allowed in any food service anyways.
