Awesome: I'm a homebrewer with access to a steady stream of free food-grade buckets. Not so awesome: Pickle buckets. How do I get the smell out?

I've googled and googled and I'm pretty sure I'm out of luck. I've tried baking soda and bleach, oxiclean and sunshine. Lemon and newspapers. Nothing seems to even put a dent in the smell. I've read all about the great success these methods but I haven't seen any results whatsoever. I don't mind consigning these buckets to other tasks, but my first choice would be to fill them with delicious beer, mead, and anything else I can imagine fermenting.
