here is the assembly in smoker. Very simple--burner is mounted in a stainless steel pan. Heat rises, so the pan will not affect the wood. I will put 'L' brackets in the burner pan, which will hold the wood pan. The wood pan will have a lid with holes drilled in it. I was very happy with this, because the wood began smoking right away and continued to have strong smoke all the way through. When the smoker cooled, I removed the wood chunk pan and they were hardly used!!! The great thing about this barrel is the temperature hold. The 1" oak is great insulation. When at 300, you can touch it and its cool. It retains heat very well.
