Heeeeey,I built a drum!

Actually built it a little bit ago, but keep tweeking it.
Just this weekend I put a kettle lid on it.
Using foil to seal it till I figure something else out.Its got a homemade fire basket made of thin expanded metal.I'm searching for a 16 gallon drum to cut in half and make 2 fire baskets out of for MY drum.I recently found a few used smooth sided drums to make a few UDS's out of to resell, but that'll be another thread.
Oh yeah.It has 2 grates.I think I put them at 3" and 12"from the top.
Last week I finally put a thermometer in it and some cheap handles on the side.
Well dang.thought I had more pics.must have deleted them.ill try to get more.ImageImageImageImageImage

Here's my score on smooth sided drums.
Got them dirt cheap.Less than $10 each!
3 on top,1 inside!
I gotta figure out where to store these and go back for more!ImageImageImageImageImageImage

Nice score!


If it's tourist season, how come I can't shoot 'em?

I can honestly say I’ve never seen a barrel transported on the roof....I’m speechless!
