Bigmista has a thread, I used some info. Modelmaker made "EDS". And I used ideas from BDS site. Was simple to make. I am hoping original paint (outside) burns off so I can go High temp. Note: no paint on inside, used new drum from McMastercarr.com.
Workin out great. 1.5 hour and still holding temps. Wind so bad it actually pushed drum a few inches!
we'll smoke u

As we speak, 2 hours into cook and just throttled back on air flow. crept up to 275.
Bad news had to foil. Did not want to raise barrel temp. Was hoping to ride this one out. Daughters 14th birthday and wife promissed to take her to Cheesecake Factory. She let me know if I pull it tonight She will eat a sammy for breakfast.

.. looks terrific! Show that top assembly when you can. That drum smoker design keeps getting my attention .... the vertical spacing from fuel to product is critical and I just can't "fake" it with the BGE. Too many solid reports about 'BDS-style' cooks to not be impressed. Good job !!
