One last thing- I drilled a hole in the bottom of the drum, close to the edge, and added one of these over it...



And I screwed this into it...



Now I have an easy way to drain drippings and water out of the drum without tipping it upside-down and throwing my back out. I sealed the flange to the drum with silicone caulk and positioned it just right so that the handle sticks out from the edge.

Tried it out the other day it it works good, but I have to make the hole I drilled a little bigger. It kinda took a while for the water to drain out after I scrubbed it.

As an added bonus, it could also be used as another air inlet. I probably won't tho. Goin very well with my single intake & control.
