I learned that my smoker holds temp very well. 5 hours at 300 without moving. Next time I will use less charcoal.

Not bad at all, reminds me of the first one I ever made using a metal trash can. It should do a very good job for you. The only draw back I found to this style was that it was quite limited in the quantity you could put in it.

Have fun!

Very Cool Mista! I have a 55 gallon drum I've been thinking about converting. Looks like fun.

Mista, about time you got your smoker! It looks great, and also truly one of a kind. Please keep posting pics, and don't have too much fun! Oh yeah, when is your first catering job now that you're a pro?

It looks very similar to the smoker my dad used while I was growing up. It made some great Que and I am sure yours will too. Best of luck with it Mista.

Lookin' good, there, Mista!

I've been thinking about building a drum smoker myself, and I like your vertical design. It would probably be easier for me to assemble than an offset, which is what my initial thinking was.

One question to anyone who might care to answer: will the flat lid affect anything? a dome seems to be the default design for commercial verticals. Does it make a difference?

BBQPETE 05-11-2006 07:14 AM

I like it,it looks like a lot of fun to make

Doorbusters 05-11-2006 07:18 AM

Mista, I do not see any of my Butt Dust, I mean Dustin's Dust on them ribs!
Congrats on the new smoker!!!!!
