Hey Guys I have a question I bought two food grade drum to build two smokers and i Built one and have been using it like crazy for about a year and half and just a few months it start to fall apart . So I was about start building a new one but I get a 55 gal from work and its a spill kit drum ( to put chemcial spill clean in the drums ) and the drum is clean. So I have a food grade drum and a chemcial drum. Why is the food grade drum taller then the chemcial drum ? And I'm guessing it does not matter as long as the top rack is 24in from the bottom of the fire basket put what happens if the top rack to the top is not 8in from the rack?
So I'm looking for sum help
