cleanout door that mostly just gets in the way and causes heat loss.
I've built 12 drums using the basic Redneck Norcor blue print and have success with all of them holding temps. Perhaps the cleanout door is causing your temp problems...not because of heat loss, but the added air flow?
Remember the KIS method (Keep It Simple)...
Let us know how #2 turns out!
I also followed Norco' plans
