+1 on the PB Blaster. Gently with 0000 steel wool. Don't get carried away.

I'll also find out if the water used in the process will freeze at 25 degrees, the temp in my garage when I started. DO NOT HOOK IT UP LIKE THIS, THE WIRES ARE REVERSED. NEG to the PART, POS to the ANODE. SORRY

I use two anodes, one on each end. You must connect the two together and attach the RED charger cable. If you use washing soda-1cup per 5gal-it will speed up the process. I use 20 Mule Team Borax. And-YES-the water must be above freezing. And yes bluing can come off with rust. My barrel cooker is a piece of 4" Schedule 40 PVC pipe, with a 40"X2" slot cut, and a 3 1/2" piece of 1/8" steel plate on each end for the anodes-they are connected with a piece of 8 or 10 gauge wire. The guns I am working were in a house fire, and very rough.. I, like you do not have a heated garage so my "cooking" is kind of at a stand still for awhile.. Will get back to it when it warms up. Been running in the teens this week, and that's too damn cold, to be working in the garage..
